Vampire Weekend Have Two New Songs for You

LOS ANGELES, CA - DECEMBER 13:  Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend on night two of 106.7 KROQ FM's Almost Acoustic Christmas 2009 at the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal CityWalk on December 13, 2009 in Los Angeles, California.  (Photo by Karl Walter/Getty Images)

Vampire Weekend debuted a few new songs down at South by Southwest, but if you did not make it to Austin and do not enjoy watching crappy YouTube videos of live performances, then good news: Here are some studio tracks. Try "Step" if you are looking for a down-tempo, Tenenbaum-y Monday jam; "Diane Young" is recommended for fans of loud drums and the Doug theme song. (That breakdown! It's so Doug.) Modern Vampires of the City is out May 7.
