Vampire Weekend are considered to be one of the most important bands of the past ten years, and have been a defining force in the indie rock genre since they released their debut self-titled album in 2008. For the fourth episode of TYF’s new music podcast This is Pop? , I was joined by TYF music writer and columnist Matt Rice to discuss the career, discography and legacy of Vampire Weekend, as well as what we think will be in the band’s future as they record their fourth album.
You can listen to (and download) the second episode of TYF’s This is Pop? Podcast below via Soundcloud.
At the end of every episode of This is Pop?, I and my guest talk about our favorite recent songs. For episode three, Matt chose “Devil is Fine” by Zeal & Ardor and I chose “Tokyo Vampire Hotel” by Tricot. You can listen to both songs by clicking the links.
