Your soul’s locked up and rusty: the best of Vampire Weekend.

I can’t explain why their sexual politics and delineation of a life of observed privilege since 2010 other than to applaud the quiet pathos communicated by their dainty arrangements. Edith Wharton, who has nothing in common with Vampire Weekend, fascinates me too. I love fiction — pop music gets shit when it’s not “relateable,” horrid word.

    There aren’t any Vampire Weekend songs I actually dislike — only ones I usually skip. They’re all on the third album, but there are only a few of them. Their quality control is almost obnoxious.
