Modern Vampires of the City is Vampire Weekend’s third album, and it is a bustling world of voices and visions from the death of Henry Hudson to the Orthodox girl falling in love at an uptown falafel shop, from Hannah Hunt tearing up the New York Times on a distant beach to the lethal chandelier of “Everlasting Arms,” from the ardent yearning of “Don’t Lie” to the harmonized voice of hope in “Young Lion”.

The Annies’ refreshing sound was met with widespread acclaim, and The New York Times’ Ben Ratliff declared Hell On Heels to be 2011’s No.1 Album of the Year. “The goal of our music is to have people feel like they’re having a conversation with us,” said Lambert. With the trio writing all 12 of the tracks on Annie Up, this sophomore collection promises to up the ante on one of the most compelling debuts in recent years.Share
