The last time i wrote about a band with the name Vampire in it they became so big that even the New York Times had to make a pretty little bar graph to chart their predicted success for 2008:
Not as clever as Pie Chart...
Now i am not saying that Vampire Hands are the new Vampire Weekend-but i have been enjoying their skills as of late. Springing forth from Minneapolis and currently touring and touting their new album, Me and You Cherry Red they are supporting Tapes n' Tapes on a few of their upcoming dates including their engagement at Filmore/Irving Pit on the 18th and in Williamsburg at the Music Hall on the 19th.
They sound muffled and confined, as though they recorded their LP in the garage of your next door neighbor which i find highly endearing. That and i am a sucker for anything with Vampire attached to the title. Definitely be sure to check them out!
