The London shows are happening while I am in Spain for my spring break... ahh! Oh well, I can't complain much. I'm just sure those shows will be something else. I saw VW live in 2014, but I am very much wanting to see this new iteration of them, what people are calling "Jampire Weekend", hehe.

Harmony Hall and 2021 were nice songs. The riff in HH is just beautiful and mesmerizing. Sunflower is alright, and I like Steve Lacy ever since I saw The Internet open for Gorillaz last October, but it's my least favorite of the tracks so far. On the other hand, Big Blue is my favorite of them all... when the slide guitar comes in it just sounds euphoric. Like VW meets George Harrison! I do have a couple of critiques, though. I wish Big Blue didn't only have one set of lyrics, and I wish it were 4x longer!

And their other new song, 'This Life', is better still.
A lovely, crisp Johnny Marr-esque guitar pop jangle!
