Vampire Weekend's self-titled debut came out of nowhere and was immediately a hugh success, containing the popular singles A-Punk, and Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa. What's more interesting though has to be their sound, not exactly pop, not exactly rock, but maybe both, even combined with and international folk. The album was considered one of the best of the year, some even said one of the best of the decade, which it very well may be. Their second album, Contra, was released in January to similar reviews, and even had a music video with Lil Jon, and Joe Jonas.
