[REVAMPED VAMPIRES] “Morning’s come, you watch the red sun rise/ The early day still flickers in your eyes/You better spare your face the raising/Because no one’s going to spare the time for you.” So begins “Obvious Bicycle,” the improbably sober opening track of Modern Vampires of the City, the new album from Vampire Weekend. It heralds the return of a subdued, evolved band. Ever since forming at Columbia University in 2006, the New York–based quartet has divided audiences with its fusion of appropriated African musical elements, precious baroque pop and a cultivated prep-school aesthetic, even as the group’s infectious songwriting won it legions of fans. Modern Vampires, out earlier this month, is perhaps Vampire Weekend’s strongest effort yet, progressing away from the discomforting aspects of the band’s music and toward a humbler, more genuine persona.
