Initially, this seems like an odd pairing of one band covering another. Upon further thought, it kind of makes sense as well. Both bands have similar roots in the dub-reggae world, but they differ drastically at their approach to making music. To me, this Vampire Weekend cover is a lot weaker sounding than the original by Rancid, but it has it’s own moments. Thoughts?
Shouts to the Esperanza crew for the heads-up.
