Track Review: "Cousins," Vampire Weekend

Rating: 8
I suppose "Horchata" and its beach-like, breezy atmosphere could use a schizo counterpart; and here it is. Easily serving as a scuzzed up "A-Punk," this is maybe the most easily accessible rock single of the year. Utterly simple in its tunefulness, yet expertly layered and executed. I mean, this is the polish that Vampire Weekend has perfected. It still makes them look "preppy," I guess, but it suits them so well. Listen here.
