“All Summer” – Kid Cudi, Rostam Batmanglij, Bethany Cosentino
Converse got Kid Cudi to collaborate with Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend and Bethany Cosnetino, whose voice really makes this song terrific.
I would have expected a little bit more out of Cudi on his introductory verse – this song could really be a smash hit, like his remix with Dan Black, but he sounds a bit monotone to me on his verse. What do yall think? I still dig it, I’m not saying I wont listen to it multiple times, but just had high hopes for Cudder’s verse. Love his adlibs on the hook though.
Vampire Weekend posted a new song from their upcoming album, Contra, on their MySpace page. Listen to “White Sky” here. You wont regret it!

“The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance” (Miike Snow Remix) – Vampire Weekend
Two of sunset’s very favorite groups in one song. Doesn’t get much better than that.
Enjoy, while I pray for some sun in Durham so I can see a nice sunset.
NEW KID CUDI! “cudderisback”
Sample is “Ottoman,” by Vampire Weekend.
The second single from Vampire Weekend off their upcoming album “Contra.” This one’s called “Cousins.” I must admit, I don’t like it as much as I like “Horchata,” but I can still dig it. It’s a lot faster and sounds more along the lines of their song “A-Punk” off their last album.
“Horchata” – Vampire Weekend
If you haven’t already jumped on board the Vampire Weekend train that came to my station quite a ways back, please do so immediately. I remember the weekend when I discovered both Vampire Weekend and MGMT…my god, best weekend of my life. Anyway, new VW material here…feels like Christmas morning! The entire album (this is just a single from said album) will be released in January of next year. Countdown begins?
Shout out to Leslie for giving me the heads up as I’ve been out of the game for a few days as I’ve made the trek back to Durham! Keep on keepin’ on, doc.
