When they first appeared in 2007 Vampire Weekend showed the sort of magpie-like approach to mixing bits of world music and western rock not seen since Paul Simon's 'Graceland'. Theirs is a preppy, clever-clogs sound with lyrics concerning architecture and bus routes. Not your standard indie rock fare then. The original press release sums them up quite accurately as Franz Ferdinand meets the Bhundu Boys.
