The truth is out! I listen to Vampire Weekend’s self-titled album secretly when no one else is at work. I played the record for a week straight earlier this year and wore-out it’s welcome around the studio in a major way. Did anyone else get sick of this album really quickly? Thankfully, this remix of Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa is one that can be played around the homies without fear of insults or passive-aggressive comments.
The Teenagers have turned a song full of repetitive jingles into something deeper and more distant. The original melodies have been preserved, only The Teenagers have replaced Vampire Weekend’s prep-school/baroque tendencies (ie: tiny Marc Jacobs boy shorts, suspenders, and unrelenting arpeggios) with some much needed edge (ie: tattered jeans, beer-goggles, and snare drum action).
