Show Review

From Vampire Weekend's forthcoming Contra record, this video for "Cousins" offers a more spastic piece of pop than the previously surfaced "Horchata". Here Ezra Koenig and Rostam Batmanglij fly around the frets, hopped up on some wicked caffeine buzz, while Chris and Chris (Baio and Tomson, respectively) side step now familiar afro leaning tendencies for rhythms that are a wee bit punkier. Heading down town for the visuals, the video feels like some twisted theme park ride...which, perhaps, they might want to consider concocting after they're done wooing the small small world after all with their latest release. - David Pitz
