Say what you will about Bret Easton and the Ellises Bret Eater Ellis Islands Dudes and the Ivy League Bros Vampire Weekend, I forgive the fact that they booked lit/music events with me TWICE and then had to cancel to be superfamous, because they rock.
These guys worship at the alter of the Yamaha…or the Casio…wtfev…and for that they are respected. Also they like Peter Gabriel-or, more importantly, Peter Gabriel likes them.
They have a new song, released today after a lengthy countdown on a landing page (that’s media marketing terminology for “dumb page that counts the visits to inflate the egos behind it”), called “Horchata”, and it is awesome.
And you can bet your popped collar we’ll be calling U A Contra very soon, to the sound of paradise in the background.
