Vampire Weekend is Slacker’s Artist of the Week.

VAMPIRE WEEKENDVampire Weekend have been the subject of so much hype and critical attention- both positive and negative- that it’s hard to believe that their new album “Modern Vampires of the City” is only their 3rd effort.

While they will always be the poster boys for a culture of Wes Anderson films and prep-school kids discovering afro-pop for the first time, they have managed to do it consistently, and authentically.

On this week’s Artist of the Week station, you’ll hear standout tracks from the new album like “Ya Hey”, “Hudson”, and the lead single “Diane Young”, along with the band’s influences, contemporaries, and side projects. Check our Vampire Weekend as Slacker’s Artist of the Week here.
