Vampire Weekend were “on” Craig Ferguson last night, which is to say they were filmed for Craig Ferguson’s show back in January and it aired last night. The magic of television, folks. Last time they played “Horchata,” this time it’s “White Sky,” and it sounds pretty much like it does on record. The outfits are a dead giveaway: You’re asking for some sweaty balls wearing a sweater in this humidity. I just wonder how much of this airing now has to do with the band being sued, or if there was an eight month embargo on this.
Contra is out now.
