  We’ve met Joel Compass before. Not in a literal sense of course, I was just searching for a new way of saying I’d written about him. He’s one of that new generation of soulful RnB singers with a (you can tell I’ve been doing this writing thing for a while when I say this) …

How did it happen? You know that four regular guys, Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij, Chris Baio, and Chris Tomson  firstly met, and then formed Vampire Weekend in 2006 while attending Columbia University. How did it happen that this sort of indie band, admittedly with killer songs, but mix in this African style guitar playing, and …
