Vampire Weekend will finally release their third album on May 7th. While playing a show last night in Sydney, the band performed a new song entitled "Arms" that will hopefully make the cut of LP #3. While the quality leaves much to be desired, keep in mind this is a live recording. There is good news however, in that it's got that unmistakable, fantastic Vampire Weekend sound. Enjoy!

Learning Secrets is at it again. This time giving us a FREE party at The Belmont with Vampire Weekend's Chris Baio! And in case you were wondering, yes, he is related to Scott Baio of Charles in Charge fame in addition to being a member of a hugely successful indie rock band. But more importantly he is celebrating the release of his solo debut "Sunburn" EP on Berlin/London's Greco Roman label. The EP is described as a realization of aesthetic developed over counteless DJ gigs from 2009-2012. If you know me you know that I love me some Learning Secrets and they will be kicking off the night in their consistantly spectacular form.
