Vampire Weekend :: "Horchata"

Yesterday, around the middle of the afternoon, Vampire Weekend descended from a nearly three year lay-off (let's remember when those songs were really recorded). What stumbled out of the speakers was something confident and glistening, thumping and primal, mercurial and wilting. "Horchata," a piece of pop music destined crush backlash like a whispering paper tiger, is a statement of purpose, a return to Ithaka to lay waste to all the impostors who dressed like you but never could string your bow. So we wait for Contra this winter and warm our fall with "Horchata" and its signature lyric, "here comes the feeling you thought you'd forgotten." Now, you remember.
