The kindly folks of Vampire Weekend are offering a new song for free over at their website – HERE. A lovely little tune concerning the drink horchata. Horchata is one of those drinks that sort of fascinates me, but in the way that it fascinates me that so many people like it. If you’re unaccustomed to this beverage, it seems to have a few different types depending on the country in which you reside. Around here it is a beverage that is found in many a taqueria or other mexican food restaurant – the ingredients seem to vary as often as the tacos. Usually here it is a rice/milk substance, often including sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Enough about the beverage, The new album by ‘Vampire Weekend’ will be entitled Contra and will be released sometime in early 2010.
