The Cool Kids = The Hip Hop Vampire Weekend


  • Point the first: Because the way they rock “Do The Right Thing” Ts and high-top fades reminds of the way Ezra Koenig rocks Christmas break with the Kennedys in Nantucket.
  • Point the second: Because us blogger types have hyped them to unfair levels before they’ve released their first album. 
  • Point the third: Because they revere music of the past and mix it into a perfectly portioned blend of contemporary but undeniably forward looking styles. 

Hereby, we’re deeming The Cool Kids to be the hip hop Vampire Weekend.  Boom!  Copyright that one for Commotion! Thanks to Gorilla vs. Bear for turning us on to their new track “Action Figures” for download on their myspace page.  Download it before the backlash begins!
