vinyl monday: vampire weekend.

Vinyl Monday

Can you believe it's already 70 degrees?! It's such a nice day! Unfortunately, the remainder of mine will spent working; I wanted to take at least a couple of minutes to have some fun in the sun.

Vampire Weekend (though not really "deck" anymore) are still a quintessential spring/summer band. Their cheery, wasp-y sound is the perfect compliment to khakis and polo shirts, mojitos and bare ankles. Perfect.


I had to sneak onto our tennis courts through a hole in the fence. No one uses them and they've fallen into disrepair, so the association put massive padlocks on the gates. Good times.

What are your favorite "summer" jams?

Josh Pyke is probably the summeriest music I can think of

I love Vampire Weekend! It's getting into colder weather here now, but summer reminds me of Queen - lots of road trips happen in summer, and the Queen cassette hasn't given up yet! ~_^
