Nearly a decade after their last live performance in Barcelona the near personal project of Ezra Koenig, Vampire Weekend, is back in town to present their much-anticipated fourth album, ‘Father of the Bride’ (2019). This fourth record, published six long years after their previous effort, ‘Modern Vampires of the City’ (2013), has been well-received by fans and critics. Tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.

Ville à Dômat: Sound Bites
Vampire Weekend shared the video for “This Life.” The track appears on the band’s recently released studio album, Father Of The Bride.
Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig co-wrote “This Life” with Mark Ronson. It features lyrics adapted from ILoveMakonnen’s “Tonight” and additional guitars by Jake Longstreth. Koenig co-produced the song, one of 18 on the double LP, with Ariel Rechtshaid. Koenig, Ronson, Rechtshaid, HAIM’s Danielle Haim (who also contributed to “This Life” and other Father Of The Bride tracks) and others can be seen in the Emmett Malloy-directed “This Life” video below:
Arlie, the band, came together on Vanderbilt campus in 2016. Their early singles “Big Fat Mouth” and “Didya Think” gained traction on Spotify’s curated indie playlists. And now, to much anticipation, the band has released its first EP. They call it “Wait.”
There’s something very “Vampire Weekend” about Arlie’s “Wait.” A band of recent college graduates releasing a debut project both technically mature and unabashedly youthful. Yet, where Vampire Weekend revels in its own Ivy League preppiness, Arlie projects a more playful, summery image of young adulthood. The result is an album that alludes just as much to The Beatles and The Beach Boys as it does to Arlie’s contemporary indie counterparts.
Ezra Furman released a new album, Transangelic Exodus, back in February via Bella Union. Now Furman has shared a cover of Vampire Weekend‘s “Unbelievers” (a song from their last album, 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City).
This time the Xmas cover is former Vampire Weekend member Rostam having a crack at The Pogues’ ‘Fairytale Of New York’. Rostam released his new solo album ‘Half-Light’ back in September via Nonesuch.
