VAMPIRE WEEKEND

Album Review: Baio - The Names (2015 LP)

Carving one’s own niche is difficult at the best of times, but it’s a whole new ball game when the name of one of the world’s most popular bands precedes you. Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio rises to the challenge on his first full-length solo release, The Names.

The Festival Diaries: The Governor's Ball in New York City (Part Three: Day Three, 2014)

Day three dawns and the sun gods have visited us again – time to get alarmed, because now we know New York will be haunted with rain, fog and mugginess for the weeks to come. Only two minutes in, Canadian's Half Moon Run have set the bar for the day, with smooth harmonies and a gracefulness that makes every instrument from drum to kazoo look like an elaborately choreographed move – more dancing than music-making.

Winners of the 2014 SiriusXM Indies announced in Toronto!

The 2014 SiriusXM Indies were held in Toronto, where the 14th annual Independent Music Awards celebrated some of the best names in Canadian and international music. Across 37 categories, winners included City and Colour, Half Moon Run, Vampire Weekend and Arctic Monkeys.

New York Festival The Governor's Ball announces Oukast, The Strokes, Jack White and more for 2014!

The New York City festival held on Randall’s island includes a slew of mouth-watering names for the June event. A freshly reunited Outkast headline the event alongside Jack White, Vampire Weekend and New York City’s very own darlings, The Strokes.

Live Review: Vampire Weekend + Gang Of Youths - Hordern Pavilion, Sydney (08.01.14)

Before Vampire Weekend, Sydney's Gang Of Youths opened the show with the skill of a band that has been playing for much longer than their two or so years as a band.

Live Review: Vampire Weekend + Gang Of Youths - Festival Hall, Melbourne (06.01.14)

Vampire Weekend playing an all-ages show in Melbourne was always going to be a big deal to many, and the band certainly knew it. Festival Hall, one of Melbourne’s most iconic but least favoured venues seems to suit the Brooklyn four-piece, however, as it is the only non-festival venue they’ve played in the city. And they do it well.

Festival Review: The Falls Music and Arts Festival (Day Two) - Byron Bay, NSW (01.01.14)

With a new year, a scorching day and hangover to contend with, it was Chet Faker, who had the chance to soothe the sizeable crowd. Taking the stage with his three piece touring band, it was heartening to see them positioned in a straight line, ensuring all members were given equal importance.

Festival Review: The Falls Music and Arts Festival, Day Three & Four - Lorne, Victoria (30.12.13 - 31.12.13)

It was day three of Falls 2013, and the only thing thicker in the air than the smell of overflowing long drops was the feeling of excitement for the incredible acts that were soon to grace the stages.

Photo Gallery: The Falls Music and Arts Festival (Day Four) - Lorne, Victoria (31.12.13)

The last day of 2013 arrives and the Falls Festival crowd are in great spirits. The Falls Fiesta parade winds its way through the crowd at sunset. The Rubens, Violent Femmes, The Cat Empire all keep the energy levels up. On the main stage Vampire Weekend count in the new year, while Horrorshow and Willow Beats do the same in the Grand Theatre. Our photographer John Goodridge captures some of the excitement.

Festival Review: The Falls Music and Arts Festival, Day Two - Marion Bay, Tasmania (30.12.13)

The first day of music on the main stages at The Falls Music and Arts Festival in Marion Bay was about as big as they get. From big hitting Australian bands to the international heavyweights, there was something on offer for everyone.
