Valentine's Day has come and gone. But, a sweet treat was delivered from Amazon.com. I just picked-up the debut release of Vampire Weekend.

The album was released on January 29, 2008. But, these boys from Brooklyn have been on my mind since before Christmas. I've listened to a single here or there. But, now I know for certain that this is a fun fun album.

Critics are quick to point out the Paul Simon Graceland influences. I'll go with that. But, maybe add a little Pavement or some other basic ska-type influence and there you have it. This will be a fun listen for the kids as well. It may not be the best album in 2008. But, at least there is a good contender early-on.
