Your favorite Ivy League indie popsters are back in the studio cooking up a sequel to their critically acclaimed debut, Vampire Weekend. Those of you hoping for a straight up clone of the first record will be disappointed to hear that the boys plan on mixing it up a bit on the second go-round. ” We’re trying to challenge ourselves not to use the same bag of tricks that we used on the first album,” Ezra Koening (vocals) told EW recently. I can only hope that this means they plan on incorporating some of the sunshiny synth bubble of Rostam Batmanglij’s (keyboards) glorious side-project, Discovery. I can’t stop listening to their first single, “Orange Shirt,” that we posted the other day. Our readers seem to like it, too (it’s our most visited post lately).
