The Death Set Are Scary, And So Are Vampire Weekend

Seems like a pretty intimidating group of lads, what with the name The Death Set and an aggressively pastel sneaker pallette, no? But they're pretty harmless unless you're allergic to buttery beats. The Baltimore-based (via Sydney/Brooklyn) crew will be jumping/sweating/yelling at Whartscape along with Dan Deacon, Spank Rock and a few other B-more hotshits.

Gerald accidently says the word of the day at a Death Set show, crowd erupts.

The Death Set - Impossible (Dan Deacon Remix)

"Rad Warehouses Bad Neighborhoods" was recorded right up the street from Butter Team HQ and debuts this week. Buy it at Morphius. Thanks to Covert Curiosity for the tip.

Another scary band we're listening to in dark rooms and darkrooms is Vampire Weekend thanks to Art Snob Solutions. Think white collar ghouls and Hansel's entourage sucking down very bloody marys on a Williamsburg rooftop.

Vampire Weekend - Oxford Comma

Such a soft, pretty sound for an evil name like Vampire Weekend. However, I know some people that are friends with Vampires...and Zombies.

Oh, and I'm fairly certain that I'm now starting a band with the name Malicious Gorrila And The Soda.
