Vampire Weekend‘s highly anticipated second album, Contra, is almost in everyone’s ALBUM TO WATCH OUT FOR 2010. Their 1st album, filled with pan-ethnic demos, was predominantly what I’ve come to call preppy ennui. (J.D. Salinger and King Sunny Adé anyone?) And now, from my initial listen of their sophomore album, they still have that African pop and Western classical vibe going on. I liked Cousins and Horchata is still growing on me. Ezra Koenig gives a visual of Manhattan in White Sky and made a closing of orchestral quality, the quiet of “I Think Ur a Contra.” Preview the rest of the tracks inside.
