I’ve been hard at work on my top albums of 2010, and it’s finally done! Head over to the article for the complete list, commentary, songs, etc.

In the next few weeks, I’ve got exams and the like, so I probably won’t have more to share until I get home later in December. Until then, I hope you enjoy the list.

Vampire Weekend Made Me Laugh

Posted in Music on March 4th, 2010 by Tom

So as you might have surmised from my failure to post a review, I wasn’t super excited about Contra. I gave it quite a few honest and earnest listens, but I’m still on the fence with it. Additionally, I’m pretty tired of the “VW Hype” that a lot of the music blogsophere seems to be consumed with… it wears on a guy after all.

When I saw the new video for ‘Giving Up the Gun‘, easily the best song on Contra in my opinion, I forgot all that for a few minutes. It’s a fantastic reminder of why Vampire Weekend is relevant. Hope you enjoy it!
