FREE STUFF: Vampire Weekend – Fight For This Love

317 vampire weekend

These New Puritans latest album. Religion. James Murphy fronting a highly successful dance punk band. All things on paper, that look confusingly, antagonisingly improbable, yet somehow in practice, work. Vampire weekend can consider themselves added to the roster for their ridiculously good cover of X-Factor eye candy, Cheryl Cole’s Fight For This Love. Stripping the original of its chart fodder electro synth babble, VW go all Maccabees by adding a brass section over unusually subdued, less excitable fretwork, delivering a version of the song every bit as catchy as Chezza’s, but now with added credibility. So long guilty pleasure, hello acceptable cover! (Thanks Live Lounge…No seriously, good job)
