Ruby SoHo Gets A Makeover From Vampire Weekend

Hey Everyone!
So unless you've been living in a cave somewhere, you've heard of up and coming indie kings, Vampire Weekend. Their recent album Contra is selling in great numbers, and is the subject of a lot of critical praise. If you havent heard it, go check it out! Anyways, in another wicked career move, the boys have released a cover of Rancid's 1995 hit "Ruby Soho"... and its BRILLIANT!

The song (which can be heard HERE) is a whole new take on the classic punk tune, but its makeover is anything but disappointing. Fans of both bands can appreciate the way these guys reconstructed it to make it their own. The cover is also available for download, in case you happen to really love it like I do haha.

Here's the original for those of you who havent heard it, its probably familiar regardless!

So what do you think of Vampire Weekend's cover? I'm a big fan.
Well, time for me to go write an exam so I'll check in later.
Rock On!
