Album No. 3: "Vampire Weekend"
In all honesty, Vampire Weekend's impressive debut, would be much lower on the list if it came out last year. However, VW made waves with their hyper-literate Afro-beat indie rock, as they managed to score a place on SNL, and other impressive first times. They won people over with their cute, Wes Andersony lyrics and beats, about going to school, and hanging 'round a place or doing something called a Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa. Not band for an indie rock band who wear boat shoes, and look like their waiting to get the crap beat out of them.
Key Tracks: "A-Punk", "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa", "One (Blake's Got a New Face)"
