Darling of the week – No. 22 – Vampire Weekend

Or: Vampire Amadeus Weekend. In their video for “Holiday” they are dressed up as pale little Mozarts (a style that is especially flattering to Ezra Koenig btw.). Only they teleported their 17th Century selves to the plastic beach sun world of this years Los Angeles. It’s a little nuts and god knows which substance gave the idea, but it’s fun to watch. Sometimes that is enough to be a darling!

The story of me and Pepper Rabbit

Sometimes it pays off reading magazines from overseas. In “Under The Radar” I found an article about a band called Pepper Rabbit. Yes, the band name is discussable, but it’s got a really sweet story behind it. You know, dead furry pet, beloved and know forever remembered by, as far as I can see, a lot of people around the world. Anyway, I listened to some of the songs on their myspace and really liked what I heard. They only got two EPs out so far and I couldn’t quite figure out how to get them here in Europe besides the amazon and itunes download. And I’m not a fan of that. I want to touch music as well as to hear it! So, if anyone finds out how to get me those EPs, let me know.
