Vampire Weekend - Father of the Bride Music Album Reviews

Vampire Weekend return with a shaggy, sprawling double album all about rebirth, contentment, and the reclamation of light.
From the beginning, Vampire Weekend were winners: charming, relatively lighthearted; Columbia students one year, festival headliners the next. They had cute sweaters and smart jokes; they wrote with wit and curiosity about the tapestry of privileged life; they carried themselves with an almost infuriating sparkle. But they were also manic, weird, and provocatively cross-cultural, mixing up digital dancehall and string sections, Latin punk and raga in ways that didn’t quite fit. And despite their superficial politeness, there was something deeply antagonistic about them, the vestigial bite of suburban kids who grew up loving punk and hardcore but never quite felt entitled to its anger, the indie-rock band bent on breaking up the monopoly rock held over guitar-based music.





Caramel Cake

Southern caramel cake is typically a multi-layered affair of yellow sponge cake that many see as just a delivery vehicle for the decadent caramel frosting. This simple, somewhat healthier one-layer version of the popular dessert has caramel with benefits. Sweet potato adds another dimension of flavor to the frosting while muscling out some sugar.

Prep - 40 m
Ready In - 1 h 40 m
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  2. For caramel: Combine sweet potato, brown sugar, water, 2 tablespoons butter and salt in an 8-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Set aside. 
  3. To prepare cake: Butter an 8-inch round cake pan, line the bottom with parchment and butter again. Flour the pan and tap out excess. 
  4. Whisk buttermilk and vanilla in a small bowl. Combine pastry flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in a stand mixer. Beat on low speed with the paddle attachment until well mixed. Add oil and beat until evenly distributed. With the mixer on, add butter 1 tablespoon at a time and beat until each addition is fully incorporated before adding more. The mixture should look like coarse sand. Add egg and yolk; beat until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. With the mixer on, add the buttermilk mixture in a slow, steady stream. Beat just until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. 
  5. Place the cake and the reserved sweet potato mixture in the oven. Bake the cake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Bake the sweet potato mixture, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potato is tender and the liquid is thick and bubbling, 50 minutes to 1 hour. 
  6. Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then turn out onto the rack. Peel off the parchment, invert and cool completely on the rack, top-side up. 
  7. Let the sweet potato mixture cool for 10 minutes. Puree in a blender until smooth. (Use caution when blending hot liquids.) Press the puree through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl, then whisk in the remaining ½ tablespoon butter until smooth. Spread on top of the cooled cake.

Should I buy the Nokia 7.1?

But these cameras are pretty good, and the display is lovely.Its build quality is above average though, and with Android One on board and decent performance it’s an excellent mid-range phone with the advantage of three years of guaranteed security updates.
