Music journalists worldwide are highlighting the current New York music scene as one to watch closely. One of the upcoming bands mentioned is Vampire Weekend. Already, David (Talking Heads) Byrne has endorsed VW. No wonder, as VW's style incorporates a heady mix of African pop, Western classical music and 80s new wave, which has to be heard to be believed.
You can listen to four catchy tracks from their eponymous debut album at its myspace site viz. A-Punk, Mansard Roof, Oxford Comma and Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa. Believe me, the noise that VW makes is refreshing...

I especially love Oxford Comma - the keyboard backing, the cute tune...
