I Think Ur A Contra by Vampire Weekend

The weather here in Los Angeles is feeling an awful lot like fall, well, as much as it possibly can, and for whatever reason it puts me in the mood for Vampire Weekend. When I was in New York a few months back I listened to Contra kind of non-stop as I walked around SoHo and went around the shops. And I as I waited for my buses this morning I had the same kind of feeling, so I thought I’d share my favorite song from the album, I Think Ur A Contra. This is the last song on the album and it’s kind of a somber one, but there’s something quite comforting about it as well. I hope you enjoy it.

On a sidenote, the Vampire Weekend concert posters above were created by Lil Tuffy, pretty rad, huh?

    The link to the audio file’s broken.

    You know, after this post I never payed attention to that song and you’re right, it’s perfect for, well, pretty much everything.

    At first listen I thought this was going to be a throwaway track that merely ended the album on a pretty and mellow note. But it’s truly a fantastic song – the kind that keeps creeping up in your subconscious long after it’s faded away. One of their best.
