Warm Heart of Africa - The Very Best w/Ezra Koenig

Legbamel Not-Pop

When I recently named Oxford Comma on of my Best Songs of the 2000s, I mentioned The Very Best and their version of Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa. I have been wondering where on earth the Vampire Weekend "sophomore effort" was hiding, since we've been so long between albums. It turns out that Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend fame has been sitting in with The Very Best, at least long enough to combine their sounds into the toe-tapping Warm Heart of Africa. For a dreary Tuesday afternoon, enjoy this fun bit of fusion. Tell me if you hear about a new album from either of these great acts, too, please.
