Vampire Weekend- Only God Was Above Us - April 5, 2024

One of my favorite bands, Vampire Weekend has been teasing their first new album in 5 years for a while and posted a cryptic Instagram tease with the initials OGWAU. Now thanks to a Spotify merch leak, we know the title, album cover, and the release date.


Can't wait. I assume a lead single is coming soon.

Old video I made when I was one of only a couple dozen people watching the show. It was at a charity event that was way out of VW's demographic.

I enjoyed their first two albums, especially Contra. Havenít listened to them beyond those two albums though.

BTW : The album title refers to this miraculous near-air disaster on Aloha Airlines. My friend's dad was on the flight.

I've never been a huge Vampire Weekend fan but I will say if you have even a passing enjoyment out of their music, their concert is 100% worth checking out. My buddy had a spare ticket in late 2019 (last concert I went to before COVID) and they just fucking rocked.

My daughter bought tickets for the Sunday matinee in MSG. They're doing two shows there with two completely different setlists and no repeats (except for A-Punk).

Album's leaked. It's really good.

But it's only 47 minutes - didn't need to be a double LP - would've easily fit onto one. Unless it's 45rpm, but I doubt it is.

Slop hooked up my daughter with an autographed LP of their last album, something for which I am eternally grateful. For this album she's taking care of it herself. She just sent me this :

Today was the day. My daughter got to very briefly meet each band member as they signed her album cover. Told them she's looking forward to seeing them at MSG.
