Show page list »


Rostam (Batmanglij, also known as Boys Like Us) is most known for being in Vampire Weekend, as well as working with Frank Ocean, Solange and The Walkmen. Half-Light is his debut solo album, filled with cinematic electronic pop that pulls from the reflective, from neon synthetic charm to choral rises and timpani led percussion.

Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam
I Had A Dream That You Were Mine

This titanic super-duo of indie pop feelings-havers contains one Walkmen frontman and one Vampire Weekend songwriter -- Hamilton Leithauser is the former and Rostam Batmanglij the latter. With Leithhauser's band dissolving as Batmanglij quit his, the duo got together to write songs in grandiose baroque stylings, much in the mould of Leithauser's recent solo material. I Had a Dream That You Were Mine is a serene collection of newly-styled old fashioned, with "A 1000 Times", its lead single, a pulpy love song romp.

EOS / Wood

Rostam’s productions tend to combine influences from both Middle-Eastern and Western classical music: the same is true of EOS / Wood, but cast in a more minimalist light. The whole track was developed from a quick idea that sprung full-grown into Rostam’s mind, and was fortunately captured in a memo on his phone. 7” single on XL Recordings.
