Vampire Weekend Is Most The Blogged Band Right Now

This week I saw Vampire Weekend twice at the Bowery Ballroom and blogged about the release of their debut record.

I wasn’t the only blogger to be talking about this cool new band. They are the most blogged band on Hype Machine right now.

Very cool.

    And across the web, they’re the 8th most clicked artist SmartLink right now – definitely a hot band!

    so if what you’ve posted is the new sound scan, then this may be the new MTV metric:…650k views2500 commentsFavorited: 4,431 timesRated 2800 timesNow granted this is with a YT promotion, but these are not underground numbers. There are hit numbers. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again. I worry when a band hits this hard the week of debut release, as there is less friction (almost none) in the blogosphe. Its here today, and gone in a few months. I wish these guys the best.

    They are good. Small wonder I discovered them (via Hype Machine) in the past few days. Fred, have you checked out Sea Wolf? I’ve been listening to “You’re A Wolf” repeatedly since I 1st heard them on KCRW…
