Thoughts: Contra – Vampire Weekend

January 4, 2010

Today Vampire Weekend posted their newest album, Contra, on their myspace for a full listen. Clocking in at 36:40, this album just as quick and tight as you have come to expect from this band. I recommend seeing them live whenever you have the chance; they do not disappoint. This album has a few more quieter moments than their self-titled debut, but this is not a complaint. ‘Taxi Cab’, for example, shows the band can pull off a quieter song that satisfies and doesn’t have you yearning for another ‘A-Punk’. ‘Cousins’ is still one of their more lyrically confusing songs as well as their first single, which makes sense. All in all, this is a great album that shows the growth that the band has made since their debut. This is not Vampire Weekend II.

Contra drops on Jan. 12.
