For some reason this seems like a perfect song for Vampire Weekend to apply their specific aesthetic to, minus the California transplanted Upper-West-Side Soweto or whatever dumb label the media attaches next (whoops! guilty!). Seriously, the schism in lovers/haters has gone too far, just let the guys come into their own sound! Stop crying Paul Simon/Afro-pop! Let's just go with, "hey this sounds like Vampire Weekend." Great song, good cover, what's not to like? RZA does NOT guest star in this one (get it? Tennis).

Contra is out now on XL, go get it and decide for yourself if you like it. It's OK if you skip "Horchata". -joe
