The Up-Turn

@TheUpTurnMusic / tinyurl.com/upturnfbook

To cap off their successful 2010, Vampire Weekend recorded a live session with iTunes.  In the session Vampire Weekend did a very interesting new rendition on Contra track Holiday.  The original which is quick and relies on a dancehall inspired instrumentation is replaced with a slower more acoustic background.  The new direction ends up giving the song a whole new feel and actually took awhile to get used to.  This version of Holiday will definitely not be everyone’s favorite but it is fun hearing Vampire Weekend take a different approach to one of their tracks.
