Vampire Weekend has been on a promotional blitz as of late, and with good reason: the release of Contra is just 7 days away. In these two videos, Ezra, Rostam, Chris, and Chris perform two songs from their upcoming album, “Cousins” and “White Sky,” for PitchforkTV’s “Juan’s Basement” segment. The strings section in both of these songs really take them to the next level. Watch and enjoy.
By the way, you can listen to Contra in it’s entirety on the band’s MySpace page.
