"nPOP Sure I've always been fond of Vampire Weekend. "
"But something has happened during the six quiet years since the Grammy-winning ”Modern vampires of the city”. "
"every day, I have not had them a little more. Ezra Koenig, in particular. The band appears to be since multi-instrumentalist Rostam Batmanglijs dropouts increasingly frontfigurens solo project."
"In his internetradioshow ”Time crisis” talk Koenig and his friend Jake Longstreth – an artist and guitarist in a Grateful Dead cover band – 70-talsrockens tasteful palette, Alanis Morissette and, like, cakes. Koenig has also created the animated Netflix series ”Neo Yokio”, which revolves around the demonjagande aristokratkids with a weakness for tennis, nautical clothing, and the strange cocktail caprese martini. These projects, together with the Koenigs contributions as a songwriter for such artists as Beyoncé and Lily Allen, are all the little signposts towards his Vampire Weekend is 2019."
"of”Father of the bride” is a double. I have already become friend with 6 of the 18 tracks that portionerats out since last winter. With time and approached me proggiga ”Sunflower”. When we look more closely at the ”Father of the bride”, as well as the call it in the seams, what emerges is something other than what first meets the eye. Subtle instrumental details, the small twists and turns in the text, an ambitious crafted pop music that raises the Vampire Weekend over the usual pop band, in fact everything else right now."
"of”Father of the bride” is the music for the spring promised mornings, from Ezra Koenig and Danielle Haim (from the Los Angeles trio Haim) duetterar to the fund by the chirping of birds in the first song ”Hold you now”. In music, it is may, but in the texts of december. The bridegroom has escaped, an inverted version of the final scene in ”the manhood Test”, a reference that is never going to fly in Vampire Weekends the universe. ”Bambina” sounds too general, as if Paul Simon had grown up with Soundcloud. "
"the Band has, since his debut with the button-down shirts, biblioteksinteriör and a whole song about the punctuation of the semicolon is rarely chosen the easy way out. When the charming, but brådmoget posturing. Now Koenig, 34, of plant in the role of the modern pop music professor. "
"With the american rootsrock, jazz, topplistehits, new rap and fanzine-pop in the portfolio, he can paint with his widest and most tasteful brush. "
"He samples a 45 minutes long tape that the japanese musician Haruomi Hosono recorded as the background music to the retail chain Muji in 1984 (”2021”), refers to the balfour declaration (Jerusalem, New York, Berlin”), similar to a collapsing relationship at the white mountain peaks and the avalanches (”Unbearably white”) thinking about spirituality (the”Big blue”), but can also afford to blossom out in jammiga 70's-excesses (”Sympathy”, ”Flower moon”)."
"”This life”, the album's centerpiece, begins with a guitar shamelessly stolen from Van Morrison's ”Brown eyed girl”. "
"”Baby, I know the pain is as natural as the rainu002FI just thought it didn't rain in California,” sings Koenig. An equally nostalgic as sharp imagery that culminates in a chorus borrowed from the rapper Ilovemakonnens ”Tonight”. "
"Somewhere in between time Danielle Haim once again into the studio to sing heavenly, something she does periodically over the entire album. The trilogy of duets the tu do together hear all of the album's highlights, particularly when they reenacts the love story of the century. "
"of”Father of the bride” succeeds with the trick to take place in an antique gold rush-America and a precise moment, at one and the same time and I don't want to listen to any other music right now. "
"I really have only a small objection in the outer margin. How much I like the title, I prefer the working title of ”Mitsubishi macchiato”. "
