The latest song from the DC-born Rostam Batmanglij finds him successfully merging the electro-funk sounds of his side project Discovery (with Ra Ra Riot’s Wesley Miles) with the African-inspired (well, at least Paul Simon’s Graceland-inspired) drums of his main band Vampire Weekend. It’s soaring and airy and upbeat, with tinges of flutes and woodwinds wafting through the background – and beautiful all around. After this one, I’m definitely looking forward to more solo work from Rostam (as well as another Vampire Weekend album soon, please). Keep tabs on the musician via his Tumblr to see what he has coming next.
