Don't Fret, Just Listen: Vampire Weekend

I have decided to start featuring music posts! Music is an important part of my life (And a very important part of Dominick's life!). Vampire Weekend is near and dear to my heart. I just feel so happy when I listen to them. Their album Contra, was the first record I bought for my record player, and boy does it sound amazing on vinyl. It really is a whole new experience when you listen to something on vinyl. There is just something so calming about it. I wrote a bit about it in this post.

"A Punk" is the first song I ever heard by Vampire Weekend, that was back in my scenester phase when I had a Buzznet (But we do not talk about that). Anyways, I have loved them for years now. I can't figure out if they are still together or not...but something tells me they are.

"Giving up the Gun" is an awesome song. The video is especially awesome because...well...Jake Gyllenhaal is in it. Haha. Dom and I both used to have such a celebrity crush on him. Look at Jake's face on the still of the video, hahaha.

Another thing that makes them super awesome is their lead singer's name:  Ezra. I think that is just such a cool name.

My friend sent my their first album and I fell in love with them with "A Punk" too! I'm not sure if they are together either but I want to hope so they make such wonderful music.

OMG! Jake Gyllenhaal! He's still my celebrity crush. I watched Love And Other Drugs last night and he's naked a lot in that movie... not that I can't stop thinking about it or anything.
