I don't really get Vampire Weekend

I honestly don't get what the buzz over Vampire Weekend is about. If these guys didn't push their preppy Ivy League schtick so aggressively (with references to Columbia, Hyannis, Cape Cod, Cambridge, etc.), would the songs themselves actually be so well liked? Even Pitchfork gave their self-titled debut an 8.8, which is pretty high praise for what really amounts to nothing more than status-conscious lifestyle jingles., where are you when we need you?
