Sometimes, you don’t know what you’re after until you get it.

When Rostam Batmanglij left Vampire Weekend, it was bitter sweet. A beloved band were losing a driving force, but with his work elsewhere, Rostam had proved himself to be a unique talent. To see that fully realised is a good thing, right?

That and some.

The first taster of a full-blooded, all in collab with The Walkmen vocalist Hamilton Leithauser, ‘1000 Times’ is a vision of a world we didn’t realise could exist, but suddenly is exposed in glorious technicolour. A swooning, swirling sea of woozy feelings, their joint vision provides something glorious. At times you can hear the influence of both their former charges, but elsewhere they slip into a groove that recalls Modest Mouse at their most brilliant. Wherever this came from, more is required.

‘1000 Times’ - not so much a song, more a repeat instruction. Just a couple of extra spins should do it. Stephen Ackroyd
