Vampire Weekend: Contra



Vampire Weekend call their unique blend of indie, chamber and Afro-pop “Upper West Side Soweto,” and if you haven’t heard them yet, what are you waiting for? Their new album, Contra, was released January 12th and builds on the sound introduced in their self-titled debut album, only with increased experimentation and even more disparate influences coming together to form an original but cohesive whole. The smarty-pants lyrics, hummable melodies, and catchy riffs from whatever instruments they could get their hands on are all here. Highlights include “Horchata,” “Cousins,” “Giving Up The Gun,” and “I Think Ur A Contra.”
