Lead track off Vampire Weekend’s Contra

Cover_contraHead on over to Vampire Weekend’s website to get a free download of their new song “Horchata”, the lead track off their sophomore effort Contra. I really enjoyed their self titled debut, and regardless of your opinion you’ve gotta admit they don’t really sound like anyone else; with that said it’s nice to see that they seem to be playing with some new sounds for album #2.

If this lead track is any indication, Contra will encapsulate the feeling of a mid-term break, as opposed to the last-dash party cynicism of their debut. “Here comes a feeling you thought you’d forgotten”, and that is just sitting around, drinking horchata, happy that your not at the party anymore but relaxed enough to remember it fondly. This album should be a great mid-winter gift (it’s out January 12th), and check out this fantastic album art.
