Another track has leaked from Contra
! The highly (perhaps too highly?) anticipated sophomore album from Vampire Weekend
isn't due out until January, but we now have two samples to get those gears going in anticipation. It turns out "Cousins" is more up beat than the first sneak peak "Horchata", and not quite as self aware, which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. The dance ready, frenetic drumming and catchy chorus captures what Vampire Weekend
does best: pop music. I wonder which side of the fence the rest of the album is going to land on. -amelia trask
UPDATE: At 1:28 P.M. we were asked to remove the MP3.
