Saturday Soundtrack (7) - Vampire Weekend

Today's Saturday Soundtrack comes from Vampire Weekend. According to Wikipedia,
Vampire Weekend is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 2006. They are currently signed to XL Recordings. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Ezra Koenig, guitarist/keyboardist and backing vocalist Rostam Batmanglij, drummer and percussionist Chris Tomson and bassist and backing vocalist Chris Baio. The band released its first album Vampire Weekend in 2008, which included the singles "Mansard Roof", "A-Punk", "Oxford Comma", "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" and "The Kids Don't Stand a Chance". The band's second album, Contra, was released in 2010. Their third studio album, Modern Vampires of the City, was released on May 14, 2013, winning them a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2014.
Chances are you've heard some of their music on sitcoms or in commercials.

But have you taken the time to listen to some of their lesser known songs? My 16 year-old made the comment just this week that it's impossible to stay mad while listening to Vampire Weekend and I agree. If you don't believe me, just give it a try the next time someone is wearing on your last nerve.
