I just logged on to SPIN.com and was met with a whole lot of change–looks like they launched a redesign of the site. Much more modular, much more dynamic. But is it better? What do you think?
New York City homies Vampire Weekend are quickly becoming as ubiquitous as MacBook Air commercials–currently gracing the cover of the music magazine for the “blawg-rockers”, SPIN and now they are featured in the new issue of Nylon magazine: (Bigger photo on Vorrasi.com.) The shots were taken at Tom & Jerry’s bar in the East Village […]
