Final night time, Vampire Weekend stopped by The Tonight Present to play a brand new monitor from their newest album Father of the Bride. Danielle Haim joined the band for a mellow rendition of their ballad “Jerusalem, New York, Berlin.”
The monitor is without doubt one of the album’s extra tender moments, however the music’s climatic construct nonetheless makes for an ideal reside efficiency.
Father of the Bride has garnered acclaim upon its launch. Pitchfork, of their 8.zero evaluation of their album, mentioned it was “proportionally life-giving, indulgent, and periodically goofy as you’d expect.” Slate‘s evaluation mentioned the album is “a feat of self-reinvention, even self-redemption, that doesn’t beg for congratulations.”
Perhaps that’s a whole lot of highfalutin music-review abstraction, however the level stays: Vampire Weekend continues to be working on the highest degree.
