Vampire Weekend Just Around the Corner

With list-making and seasonal festivities behind us now it’s time to look ahead to new music releases for 2010. First one up, the always brilliant Vampire Weekend whose upcoming sophomore album Contra is out next Tuesday (Jan. 12th) via XL. But the icing on the cake is news that the Brooklyn quartet is touring in support of the album. Vampire Weekend will play a few shows in the US before heading to Europe in February. They'll return to North America to tour in March and April. (I’m looking at you Calgary March 15th!)

If you would like to preview Contra, you can do so right now right here - or on Vampire Weekend's MySpace page, where they're streaming the entire thing for free.
