finally: new Vampire Weekend

In the last couple of years, there have been very few albums of new music that I have been totally obsessed with from beginning to end. The one I still come back to whenever I need great driving music in the summer or perfect hangout music in the winter is Vampire Weekend.

As much as I love the whole album and still really like listening to it, I've been dyyyyying for something new from them for ages! Their song "Ottoman" from the soundtrack to Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist was great as well, but it's only one song.

I read an interview in Rolling Stone this summer, saying that Vampire Weekend had a new album coming out soon, and finally we get our first taste, on their Web site, with a song called "Horchata."

I love it. It's upbeat, layered and sounds new but unmistakably VW.

The album, called Contra, comes out January 12th. I guess this will have to tide me over until then!
