This Week on Vulture Recommends: New Picks From Vampire Weekend, Ken Burns, Nicole Krauss, Jason Moran, and Our Critics


Have you ever noticed how much stuff there is out there? And have you ever wished you had some brilliant people to help you sift through all that stuff to pick only the very best stuff there is? Wouldn't it be nice to have TV-doc legend Ken Burns pick the best baseball movies, or recent National Book Award nominee Nicole Krauss select the best confessionals, or recent MacArthur Genius jazz man Jason Moran queue up the best new jazz, or Vampire Wekeend's Rostam Batmanglij pick which albums you should play at your college party? Well, we've got all that good stuff at Vulture Recommends, where you'll also find recent lists by folks like Sarah Silverman, Salman Rushdie, and Ethan Hawke, and picks from our own Vultures — critics who are carefully scouring the bones of culture to bring back the meatiest indie-press comics, DVDs, films, and albums. Check it out: There's a lot of stuff we think you'll dig.
