Finally we get two new official recordings of songs from Vampire Weekend off of their upcoming album Modern vampires of the City. The two songs are called “Step” and “Diane Young”. Just like the best Vampire Weekend Songs “step” has all of the clever word play that you could ever want. But the song still retains its emotional core and poignant observations. “Diane Young’ is just a fun time all around that everyone should enjoy hearing. Check out both songs below.

So She and Him, The Strokes, and Vampire Weekend all have new albums coming out in the next few months. Rejoice! She and Him’s new album is called Volume 3 which is in keeping with their past volume themed albums. The Strokes come back with Comedown Machine and we’ll see if it results in as much debate as their last album did. Finally, Vampire Weekend is back with their third album called Modern Vampires of the City. If their last two albums are any indication the only way this would not be good is if they decided to go the heavy metal route.
