    Vampire Weekend Hit Number One

    Billboard reports that Vampire Weekend's Best New Music album Contra has sold 124,000 copies in its first week, making it the highest selling album in the country. Contra debuts at number one on the Billboard 200 today, beating out the likes of Susan Boyle (number two), Lady Gaga (number four), Taylor Swift (number eight), and the Black Eyed Peas (number ten).

    According to Billboard, Contra, which was released by XL, is only the 12th independently distributed title to hit number one since 1991, when SoundScan started tracking sales.

    wow, i'm actually kind of shocked. either they just released it at a good moment when none of the other bands mentioned have really new albums, or a minor musical miracle actually occurred.

    It's all the fangirls. And besides that, there was some article in the news here in NY about an explosion on one of the singer's streets, in Brooklyn. Good job practically giving out his address. My friend and I were like, "Yeah he's probably gonna have to move, lol." And not bc of the explosion either...

    lol i'm really enjoying the new album, it's much weirder than the first but still very much them.
    i can see why people think they're annoying - i think it's the whole prep rock thing but i just enjoy the music. and i was prepared to hate it too, but the minute i heard the first album i had to admit the buzz was justified. it's just instantly gratifying.
    i kind of expected them to be one-hit wonders though. they surprised me again with 'contra'.

    I kinda like Cousins, it sounds like Kings of Leon on speed.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    I have to admit that even though I have tried my hardest to get to a computer I have not been able to. I don't have one at home right now and I'm moving to my castle in Edinburgh next monday so I'm quite busy. I might get to a place where I can check it out next weekend. If not I have to just find another way.

    Right now I'm in a library to get my gossip fix and I'm pretty sure they will kick me out if I get my rocking on.

    I have not forgotten this and will definetly get back to it. If it sound a little bit like Kings Of Leon I will probably like it, I love that band. Or everything else that they make besides that Use Somebody song.

    I listened it. Sounded kinda weird, not really my kinda thing.

    But I'm not usually into that kind of rock, I like grunge and stuff.

    me too. i think they're overrated hacks. they're the type of faux indie band that everyone seems to love and i think are lame beyond words. like bright eyes, snow patrol, the killers, death cab for cutie, etc...

    It's a weird album, but I like it so far. Horchata is my favorite song from it at the moment.
