Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig Speaks on New Album Title, Nintendo

vampireweekend

As we mentioned just the other day, Vampire Weekend are set to release their long-awaited sophomore album, Contra, come January.  If the name brings to mind NES binges, that's 'cause frontbrah Ezra Koening recently confessed to MTV News that, as an 80s baby, it is hard for him not to be influenced by the 1987-released Konami essential. But you should also be aware by now that Mr. Koenig's brain fidgets now and again. He went on to admit that there's double meaning, that "everybody [his] parents' age thinks of the counter-revolutionaries in Nicaragua."
