Vampires up the Coast

The sound track (or at least pat of it) to the family trip from San Francisco up the Oregon coast to Seattle was provided by the Vampire Weekend album . I know I am a bit late to the party here but none the less it’s all jolly good stuff. The African-esque guitar work recalled (a tad unfortunately methinks) the Paul Simon/Graceland guitar, and perhaps more positively 1980’s era Zaire music and more recently still the Extra Golden boys. Tracks like Campus and Blake’s Got A New Face always caused a sing-along in the hire car.It was one of those rare albums that satisfied us all including my fourteen year old daughter who prefers the likes of Adele (whose album also accompanied us on our trip…) and whilst this really isn’t my thing a couple of tracks like Hometown Glory stood up to repeated listening.
