Stream Vampire Weekend's Contra
It's out next Tuesday, but Vampire Weekend are getting a head start on pumping their sophomore record, Contra, out into the world. The entire album's on MySpace now, free of charge. Pair your listen with the incongruously casual-yet-featuring-a-fullish-string-section "Cousins" performance the band did for Pitchfork's Juan's Basement, or Lizzie Widdicombe's ace VW profile in the New Yorker. You are not finished hearing about this record yet. [Vampire Weekend]
