“California English” (Live on KCRW) (Video)

    Vampire Weekend performed on the KCRW show Morning Becomes Eclectic yesterday (Jan. 11), and video footage from the session is now streaming on YouTube. In this clip, they perform an autotuned version of the skittish fourth song on Contra, “California English.”


    We checked in on Simon Reynolds’ concise rundown of the album earlier today on this clip of “Cousins” from Conan O’Brien’s show, and for “California English” the Rip It Up and Start Again author has declared it “sensational” (which isn’t quite as good as his “supersensational” epithet bestowed on “Diplomat’s Son”).
