My older brother Jerry introduced me to all sorts of different music in the 80's. I especially loved when he played Ska.
Vampire Weekend has the same Jamaican influences & sounds like a mix of English Beat, Paul Simon & a sprinkle of The Beatles.
IMHO the band has an unfortunate name, but I love every song I've heard by them.
Go to their website to have a listen. Their album comes out in a month.
