A Slice of Fried Gold

Stream Vampire Weekend's "Contra"

Sunday, January 3, 2010

I must admit - in my intense anticipation of Vampire Weekend's new album Contra I've been searching for a leak on a daily (if not hourly) basis. There have been a number of bait and switches so far, but the best thing next to that option is finally upon us.

Vampire Weekend has now put up the entirety of Contra up for stream on their Mypsace page. If it is anywhere near as good as the initial releases indicate, we're in for one of the better albums of 2010 right off. Check it out yourself and look for a review of this coming up tomorrow, along with (hopefully) looks at Yeasayer's Odd Blood and Los Campesinos!' Romance is Boring. Both of those albums are also being released later this month.

Vampire Weekend's Contra is being released January 11th in the UK and January 12th in the USA. Don't forget to pick it up.

Thanks for the heads up from my friends at Vinyl and Vodka.
