Obligatory Vampire Weekend Playing "Cousins" and "Giving Up the Gun" on Saturday Night Live Post

Well actually, there was a lot to like here--a little string quartet and two foxy, bejeweled back-up singers on "Giving Up the Gun" in particular, which remains a really satisfyingly grown-up song coming from a band this young. And "Cousins" has like 50% less stressed-out guitar face than it did when VW first start playing it on late night TV shows! A win all around, and a nice pairing with the always charming Zach Galifianakis. Real talk though: Ezra needs to give the red APC Nikes a rest--it's been like a year now, dude. If Rostam can put the scarves back in the closet, you can do it too.
