Vampire Weekend Stream Contra on Myspace

PREVIEW: WATCH Vampire Weekend’s “Cousins

Vampire Weekend swept the music scene with their self-titled debut release in 2008. Finally this “Upper West Side Soweto” foursome is gracing the public with their sophomore album Contra. While the release date is set for Jan 12th for the US and Jan 11th for the UK, the band very graciously decided to stream the album on their Myspace page a week before the release.

The new album generally sticks with the band’s much loved style, however it feels more heavily influenced by  African popular music in comparison to the previous release which was full of Western Classical influences. So far Contra has been received with positive reviews. For your chance to hear the release visit Vampire Weekend Myspace.
