Contra Preview

Vampire Weekend is a name commonly known name by all.  Their sound that is influenced by what is said to be African Popular music and Western classical music is loved by many.  Some songs even reference Congolese soukous music.  That fact many avid listeners are unaware of.  Vampire Weekend’s sound is more commonly known for it’s New York Upper East side flavor.  The mixture of the Upper East Side and African flavors turn into something I have found to be rather delicious.  Their sophomore album is due out tomorrow, January 11.  The album is entitled “Contra” which was mostly recorded in Mexico.  From what I’ve heard so far this album will be top-notch.  They have certainly progressed from their original album and have produced something of value.  Check out their performance they did for Pitchfork.  Some great new material headed our way tomorrow.
