"New Vampire Weekend - Father of the Bride"
Mon Mar-11-19 02:54 PM by maro

          

album drops in april

They released 2 tracks in Jan and 2 tracks in Feb. Streaming services have them.

Took me a few listens, but not mildly obsessed with each track.

Especially Harmony Hall and Big Blue.

Not a HUGE fan, but I have always enjoyed their sound.

Always loved their song STEP where they cover the hook from Souls Of Mischief's step to my girl.

Anxious to see how they do after the one guy leaving. I liked the first two songs, wasn’t too impressed with the next two but just have them one quick listen. I’ll wait til I can listen to the album in full.

Their first album is among my favorites of the 00s. Such a tremendous, fun, easy-listening album front to back.

Who left the band ? Not that I really know of any of them individually haha just curious what instrument is being played by someone new.

Not sure how/if that affected their sound. Not really feeling the new songs though.

He did all the orchestral stuff you've heard on VW songs. The elaborate compositions, ornate flourishes, etc. He was the classically-trained musician in a band full of guys who just like to play. For a lot of people, that's what sets the band apart.

I've always been a fan, but I'm not optimistic about what they'll sound like without him. It's still an automatic spin, though.

That will significantly impact my enjoyment level, I'd have to think. The complex orchestral arrangements and compositions are *exactly* what was appealing to me about them. Shit.

I can obviously google this but don't care to, if you know off the top of your head - haha, but why did he leave any idea ?

I AM mildly obsessed with the new tracks. And they seem orchestrated / Musical as fuhhhhk.

to me at least.

Either way, something to look forward to...


I think we are getting a new TAME IMPALA soon too. CURRENTS is still on regular rotation.

So I see that the first song is co-produced by Hans Zimmer....and has Danielle Haim on it.

....and it's a fucking Lumineers song.

That was disappointing, but overall I like the album but they were away so long that there's no way to be as good as one would expect it to be.

I think it's gonna be one of the records that people will come around on later.

Really hope that non-country artists making country records doesn't become the wave.

Lol..yeah I was scratching my over that Hans Zimmer co production credit too, turns out they sampled from one of his soundtracks

Just out of curiosity, why do you think this album is going to be grower? I been trying to keep an open mind out of respect for their previous work, but I just can't get with the old timey, simplicity of a lot of these songs. I actually really like all the singles that came out for the rollout, but literally all the other songs on the album are on a totally different vibe.

It’s very different, not sure how I feel about the album I need to listen to it more but it will probably end of being my least favorite.

They could have pared this down to the best 10 songs and it might have been as good as Contra...but I think this is their worst album so far.

It has some great moments, some monotonous moments, some head-scratching moments, and a few clunkers. They sound like a band that lost a key member and now they're a little lost and trying to figure out who they want to be. They're spitballing.

some highlights (Harmony Hall) but they really should've pared down. Was considering seeing them this summer despite super expensive tickets, but this LP has convinced me not to

I have had this on rotation both in the foreground and background, and I got to say, the more I listen, the more I love it.

This will be their sleeper album that everyone will come to love by time the next album shows up.

We will re-visit this post then..... if it ever happens.

Also, probably my favorite VW album overall, after having it in constant rotation for nearly two weeks.
