“Run” & “Holiday” (Live On Spinner’s Interface) (Video)

    Vampire Weekend, along with Rostam Batmanglij’s awesome xx T-shirt and, presumably, the rest of the band’s Banana Republic attire, recently cut a live session for Spinner’s Interface that included older jams like “Oxford Comma” and “A-Punk,” newer known jams like “Cousins,” and two deep cuts from Contra. “Run” is above, and in live form, the keyboard arrangements sound suspiciously Legend of Zelda-like. Also performed is “Holiday,” a rollicking rumbler that shares a fingerprint with “A-Punk.” Go here to see the sessions.


    Contra is due out on Jan. 12.
