In honor of Contra (on computers everywhere today, and also in stores probably), check out the boys stopping by MTV's Unplugged series (which does, in fact, still exist). Remember the one with Dashboard Confessional? Man, 2002! Killing it!
Now people be hating on VW, and rightfully so, they gots the hype to annoy even the softest of critics. But Contra isn't the career killer that some are undeservedly pointing fingers at, so chill out, world! Let these guys just be themselves, they are really good at it! They even translated really well to the acoustic setting with strings and flutes and stuff. It is enjoyable! Don't be a grump.
Everyone is posting "Cousins" but I am tired of "Cousins". Check out another cut off the record, "White Sky":
And check them out on Conan. Oh, they played "Cousins":
Contra is out today on XL. Pick up your copy and pick a side in the great Vampire war today. -joe puglisi
