"If Vampire Weekend was 'Rushmore,' Contra is their 'Royal Tenenbaums': Brainy, confident and generally awesome." — Rolling Stone

"...full of modern, open-minded indie rock that's not scared of pop — or much else for that matter." — The New York Times 

Like their 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. Primarily recorded in New York with a springtime sojourn to Mexico, Contra feels altogether fresh, joyous, and like nothing else but is immediately recognizable as the sound of Vampire Weekend.
