New Vampire Weekend – “California English” (Live In LA)

When not giving guitar lessons and/or soundtracking HP commercials, Vampire Weekend’s performing new songs from Contra. Last week you saw and heard “Cousins.” This time it’s “California English.” (Thanks for the tip and video, Jesse.) The band did it over the weekend at a free show at the Hollenbeck Rec Center Band Shell in L.A. (“California English” in California, etc.) The sound’s a bit distorted, but it gives you an idea.

Note: This is “California English” and not the “Cousins” B-Side “California English Pt. 2.”

Contra is out 1/12 via XL.

UPDATE: Two other Contra tracks VW have played live in the last few months (via P4K)…
