I am pleasantly surprised with Vampire Weekend’s new record, Contra. I’ve never really been a fan of them before, but I’m really digging this album. My fave tracks rights now are “Run”, “Giving Up The Gun”, and “Diplomat’s Son”. But really all of them are good. On the second track “White Sky” I get a Paul-Simon-You-Can-Call-Me-Al vibe, which is funny and awesome at the same time.
Also the album art and website are great - http://vampireweekend.com/ - after all, large background images are the new black!
If you haven’t already, pick this record up!
