This is definitely my favorite Vampire Weekend album. Diplomat's Son, Cousins, and Giving up the Gun are my favorite songs off this album.

Their debut album was just SO highly addictive and with a new release just on the way for this year, this release itself just does not disappoint!

Cousins is a funny, pointless, addicting song. The music video is equally ridiculous, but just as fun-loving and fun to watch. Watch it and listen to the song for a good laugh and smile.

This is my first Vampire Weekend album. It took some getting used to. It sounds like what would happen if Paul Simon did house music. But it is fun and poppy.
