the original vampire weekend

Campus (Original Version)
Rostam Batmanglij

“Campus,” the sixth song on Vampire Weekend, was written by keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij before the band was ever formed. The version that appears on the album is very different from Batmanglij’s original version, presented here. Instead of an indie rock track with Afropop influence, “Campus” appears here with no guitars or keyboards, and minimal drums, all replaced by a luscious string ensemble. Batmanglij’s vocal delivery is softer than Koenig’s, and the song takes a completely different attitude from the final version that appears on Vampire Weekend. 

the sun in santa fe and new york are the same - a perhaps overly cute jack/crutchie mix because they’re overly cute themselves
