Not that we want every band to have testosterone cascading out of their armpits, of course, but Vampire Weekend are a bit wet aren’t they? On ‘Oxford Comma’ they’re sweet, melodic and pleasantly tooty in a Rugrats theme tune kind of way and though we applaud their warm geekiness in writing about punctuation, a little more beefiness wouldn’t go amiss.
