Rostam – “Wood”

Rostam Batmanglij of small band Vampire Weekend has put out new music that also isn’t part of his other side project, Discovery. It’s his own solo stuff and the multi-intrumentalist still has his signature ear for regional sound. The bright, earthy track is offset by his drowsy vocals that make it feel like you’re waking up in a forest on Christmas morning with the only other person you’d want to be there. No word on whether a full album is planned, but for now check out the Middle Eastern-influenced track below.
