Rostam – Wood

September 30, 2011

At this point, the world already knows how talented Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend’s multi-instrumentalist and production guru) is. Vampire Weekend is one of the more famous indie rock bands out there and Discovery (a collaborating between Rostam and Ra Ra Riot’s Wesley Miles) got a ton of appraisal when their debut LP came out in the summer of 2009. One of the things Rostam likes to do is go places Vampire Weekend would never go. His personal music is much more ambitious and well… crazy. A few days ago he released “Wood” which is an uplifting track with a lot of Asian instruments and sounds. I have no idea if this means that there is a new Vampire Weekend album coming, or more likely a new Discovery album coming. Most likely, it is just Rostam playing around and sharing his creative genius with the world.
