Artist of the Week

Written by the interns and volunteers of WFIT, Artist of the Week highlights a new artist or album we think you should be checking out.

Clad in pastels, Vampire Weekend brought Ivy League prep sensibilities to indie rock in 2008 with their self-titled debut. After Vampire Weekend came the band’s 2010 sophomore record, Contra, and the New York City quartet continued their reign of springy pop songs with African rhythms.
