After the release of their eponymous debut self titled album in January 2009, the New York quartet graced the cover of Spin magazine and played on almost every television program from Saturday Night Live to David Letterman.
They regrouped in early 2009 to begin the recording of their 2nd album, Contra. Like the first album, Contra was produced by keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij and is the realization of a whole and unique musical vision that sees the band stretching out and adding new textures, instrumentation, and rhythms into their sound.
Contra feels altogether fresh, joyous, and like nothing else but is immediately recognizable as the sound of Vampire Weekend.
