New Music: Vampire Weekend, Cool Kids and MGMT

Vampire Weekend are already receiving a ton of press and there's quite a lot of anticipation already for their debut which comes out on 1/29. They may be the first and only indie band I've ever heard compared to Graceland-era Paul Simon.

Although The Cool Kids sound can come off as some sort of gimmicky, there is some fun stuff going on here if you can get into it. You may recognize this song already from a Rhapsody commercial last year:

MGMT is another band that is gaining a good amount of publicity right now with help from an appearance on Letterman and an opening slot for an Of Montreal tour. Their debut album, Oracular Spectacular, is out now.
