Vampire Weekend – Cousins

Just two songs – the album version of “Cousins,” which one leading columnist famously described as “awesome controlled craziness and ends with bells going CLANG CLANGCLANG CLANG CLANG CLANGCLANG,” so that’s good, and the B-side is “California English Pt. 2,” an extremely pro-California trippy song with samples and auto-tuned vocals. It’s interesting to hear V-Dub doing something 25% Aphex Twin, but it’s not their finest moment. As for California itself, I am rather aporetic and I need to visit.
