Vampire Weekend - Walcott

In response to the request for the Cape Cod song on the newest Monthly Mix (Stranger to Blue), here you go. Turn it up and dance at your desk. Careful though, there is a cuss word in there somewhere...




Update: Kudos to Mark for making sure I paid attention to this band in the first place.

I played that song for my 12 year old niece and regretted it when I heard the cuss word. I wasn't quite quick enough to turn the volume down on that part

I like this new band, and yeah for the Cape Cod mention... Thanks for adding me to the listen, loving the new mixes! Misty (Jarita's friend)

Misty - Glad you're enjoying the tunes.
Karen - Stop corrupting the youth of our fine country!

p.s. I thought Karen got credit for the VW find???

wilablog said...

Hmm. Not sure. But maybe she will weigh in.

It's just a matter of time. No worries. I just need to get back into my hair metal swing of old...

All I can think is that these guys are clearly wash-ashores b/c it should be "off of Cape Cod" not "out of Cape Cod."

The lines about Hyannisport, the women from Wellfleet, and the bears in Provincetown definitely made me smile, though.

"Washashores" - new one by me. Thanks for the cultural education! If you want to fill me in on "Hyannisport, the women from Wellfleet, and the bears in Provincetown..." that would be awesome.

Hyannisport is hardly a ghetto -- that's where lots of affluent people have their summer homes. (The Kennedy estate is in Hyannisport, to give you an idea.)

Wellfleet is a town on the outer cape, but I don't know much about the women there specifically. My guess would be that they're mostly the prim and proper wives of retirees who have taken up antiquing. Someone else might have more insight on that one.

Every summer Provincetown hosts "bear week" to celebrate the big, burly, hairy male physique in all its ursine glory. I refer you to: http://www.ptownbears.org/

Oh! You could have warned me before I went to that website! (shiver)

The Whiskey said...

"big, burly, hairy male physique in all its ursine glory" isn't a warning?!

Heh.

I was in P-town the week just before Bear Week this year, and let me tell you, the air was *electric* with anticipation. The shops were all selling boxer shorts with paw prints on the them and t-shirts that read "I *heart* bears" and "Cover Me in Honey and Feed Me to the Bears."

Not kidding.

I got a bit of a preview from some of the bears (and their cubs) who arrived few days in advance. (Kind of glad I got out of there before the week got started in earnest.)

Thanks for the additional detail...that's exactly what I needed, more mental images of "bears." Sounds like a unique experience in p-town.
