Vampire Weekend

Contra

(XL)

Releasing: 10 January

Much loved and equally much hated New York "Afro"-indie-popsters are unveiling their sophomore release in the new year, right smack dab in the middle of that early year dead zone for new releases. The band has been playing "White Sky" this year giving fans a preview of the new work, including taking a crack at the tune on the Jimmy Fallon show back in March. You can head over to Stereogum to grab an MP3 of that live track.
