Onto Vampire Weekend with their highly anticipated opus Contra. Loads of folks waiting on this one. I wasn't hugely impressed by the first album though there was a couple of good tunes on it. But after hearing Cousins we were pretty much all interested in hearing this new album. On first listen it didn't do very much for us though. The single is by far the standout moment but then after multiple listens of that you'd expect it to be. Inevitably 'Graceland' is gonna pop up in reviews as there's loads of homage's to it with the African pop on offer here. There's plenty of good ideas and good tunes on here though, it's not a bad album by any stretch of the means.. It just feels a wee bit empty and ever so slightly disappointing but then the first album did. I'm going to play it again a few times and see what happens and I'm gonna hope it grows on me. It's worth checking out for 'Cousins' though which is an amazing piece of pop music!
