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.
With the release of Vampire Weekend’s sophomore album happening next Tuesday, DJ Toy Selectah has decided to release his own remixed version of Contra on the very same day. Known for his high-energy and fast-paced remixes, Toy Selectah is one of Mexico’s hottest DJs. His remix of Lil’ Wayne’s “A Milli” was nothing short of amazing.
Here we get a chance to listen to his remix of Vampire Weekend’s second single from Contra, “Cousins.” It’s definitely as catchy, if not more than the original.
