Music Monday: Songs you might want to hear – Vampire Weekend

(If you don’t like snakes, be warned, there is a snake in the first video)

There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.

Now, I can’t say to someone, “You’ll like this song” (or book for that matter) because I can’t presume that others will share my taste in music (or books), so it is safer to say, “You might like this” and if they don’t like it, so be it.

Maybe you will find a new favorite.



Vampire Weekend is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 2006. The band was formed by lead vocalist and guitarist Ezra Koenig, multi-instrumentalist Rostam Batmanglij, drummer Chris Tomson, and bassist Chris Bain.

“Harmony Hall” was the first song I heard from the group. The first thing that made me like this song was the guitar work, then the percussion, and finally the piano.
