Vampire Weekend Release “Cousins” Video

“Cousins,” the second single from Vampire Weekend‘s forthcoming album, Contra, hit the internet on Monday, and today we get the video. The song itself is crazy good, like “A-Punk” on speed, and the video is pretty great too. Two thoughts so far: One, I don’t know if it’s the jagged movements or his slightly longer hair, but Ezra Koenig is starting to remind me of John Linnell from They Might Be Giants. And two, he holds up a boot, then a picture of a boot, that very well might be the very same LL Bean Katahdin boot I hope to receive for Christmas this year.
