Seperated at Birth?

Heavily hyped NYC hepsters du jour Vampire Weekend (2008) --



-- and one hit wonder NYC hepsters de le vieille école Every Mother's Son (1967).



Seriously -- are both of these bands just too cute for words or what?

For some reason, this reminds me of Unit 4 + 2's "Concrete and Clay."

Without the great guitar solo....

Would someone please explain the appeal of Vampire Weekend? Seriously, I don't get it. Every Mother's Son is much better and they aren't all that great.

ROTP(lumber)

Kinda got that Cowsills vibe too. But to me this Vampire video is a big step down from (I think it was) their first one, which in addition to being perky beyond all human understanding ALSO at least gave off a Hey Hey We’re the Monkeys kind of grin that this one lacks.

"Too cute for words..." Ya if cute is another word for goofy looking , particularly if we're talking about Every Mother's Son. I just can't take Vampire Weekend seriously though, every time I hear the lead singer I think early 70's Paul Simon. There goes my hipster cred.
