Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig reviews Drake (sort of), hates Hans (Panda Bear is cool though)

Drake

Spoiler alert. Here’s an excerpt from Ezra’s 10-out-of-10 review of Drake’s new album Nothing Was the Same:

Why did I invite Panda Bear and not my wife? Fair question. Our son was only two months old at the time, so she didn’t want to leave him with a babysitter. Also, all u eagle-eyed readers might remember that Hans and I bonded over a shared predilection for a certain song by a certain band — that’s right, motherfuckers, the one and only ANIMAL COLLECTIVE.

So I’m picking out my outfit when I hear a buzzing sound — OMG I’M GETTING A TEXT. I run upstairs PRAYING it’s from Hans but… it’s just Panda Bear again. His friend from college, Nathan, is in town. Can I get an extra plus on the list?

The rest of that review can be found at the Talk House (who are hosting a CMJ showcase at the same venue Ezra took Nathan to).

Drake is touring with Miguel and Future.

Vampire Weekend recently played Barclays Center where they also appeared for the VMAs which Drake also played but will be most remembered for Miley Cyrus, who, after recently hosting and playing SNL, played with The Roots and Jimmy Fallon last night, as you can see in the video below….
