“With the ballyhooed release of Father of the Bride, Vampire Weekend makes a serious case for being the only band from indie rock’s ascendant decade that’s remained creatively inspired, commercially viable, and culturally interesting enough to still command true mainstream attention. In short, they may be the most important band of the ’00s indie era still operating at the end of the ’10s” – Tyler Clark, Consequenceofsound.
