"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 ?

Either way, something to look forward to...
