Show Review

In their video for "Holiday", don't count on Vampire Weekend for gratuitous appearances of the Lacoste alligator... the guys are answering cries of preppiness by abandoning their brightly colored polos for... well, let's just say Louis XIV would feel right at home.

Aside from their lavish palace, the boys in wigs can be seen running around on the beach, chasing bikers, riding in cars, and other hilariously anachronistic settings for their funky out-of-date garb. Still, I have a hunch the kids at Duke are going to start dressing like this... because let's face it, Duke sucks. But Contra doesn't, out now on XL.
