Vampire Weekend AOL Session

Vampire Weekend AOL Session


As we all hear Contra via web streams this week for the first time (hear it below at the bottom of the post), thoughts turn to how this album will translate live compared to their first album seeing as it lacks a teeny bit of the buoyancy. Pretty well by the looks of these live session videos. While Contra lacks the immediate sugar rush of the debut, it seems to be making up for it in depth. It’s still growing on me so time will tell how it stands up. Here are three new tracks from Contra performed live – ‘Holiday’, ‘Cousins’ and ‘Run’ with two well-known tracks from the first album for good measure.




‘Oxford Comma’
