Stream Baio The Names

Stream Baio The Names

After a couple of EPs and a few years of solo work under his belt, Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio has finally arrived at his debut album, The Names. We’ve been getting very season-appropriate singles all summer long — “Brainwash yyrr Face,” “Sister Of Pearl,” “Endless Rhythm,” and the title track — and now the entire thing is streaming just a few days before its release. In a new interview with Noisey accompanying the album stream, Baio talked about some of his expectations for the record: “It’s exactly how I want it to be and anything after that is the cherry on top,” he said. “Any time someone in a band makes their own record they want it to be its own thing and to live in its own world. I just hope The Names gets to have its own life.” It’s certainly a lively record — time will tell if it experiences much of a life away from his main project. Listen below.
