Below you'll find a full album stream through our friends over at LaLa. What we’d like you to do is lend us your brainwaves and tweet whatever crosses your mind while listening. Maybe there’s a riff you can’t get out of your head. A lyric? A moment? An image? If you’re feeling ambitious, spend your 124 characters reviewing the record as a whole. Just toss those tweets over to us at @thetripwire and by the end of the week, we’ll cobble together and share the beautiful mess of a madlib it creates. Or, if you’re a complete Luddite/TwitterHater, you can just leave 124 characters in the comments section. We’re flexible.
This week we've got the much argued about sophomore effort from Vampire Weekend, Contra. We've always dug these guys, and this time around is no different. If you don't feel the same about Ezra & Co., we understand. But at least check it out before you judge and tell us why. We'll even get you started with our own 140-character take.
Things VW aren't listening to: haters. Things this frees them up to listen to: lots and lots of music. Contra aptly celebrates just that.
