Vampire Weekend - 'Cousins'

I didn't really like 'Horchata' too much (get the free download here), but this track is awesome and makes me excited for what's still to come from the band. The song is really jumpy, slightly more aggressive than their previous work, but overall very happiness-inducing, while the video is - as ever from these New York boys - a lot of fun.
You can pre-order their second album, 'Contra' from HERE - the album is released on XL Recordings on January 11th here in the UK.

My friend thinks the tracks revealed so far are awful, but whatevs - I'm really liking this song so I'm glad to have some support on the matter :)
