Vampire Weekend

One of the best albums to come out this past year is Vampire Weekend's self-titled debut. Here's A-Punk, which has some great lyrics in addition to the good natured fun happening in the video.

"His honor drove southward seeking exotica
Down to the pueblo huts of New Mexico
Cut his teeth on turquoise harmonicas

I saw Johanna down in the subway
She took an apartment in Washington Heights
Half of the ring lies here with me
But the other half's at the bottom of the sea."

Just picked up a copy of the album thanks to your recommendation. Good stuff.

Hooray! I was going to say they also remind me a wee bit of early Police.
