This is pretty fucking cool! I saw this the other day and thought it was a joke. The awesome Hot Chip and Peter Gabriel have covered Vampire Weekend’s awesome song ‘Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa’. It all makes sense, after all Vampire Weekend name drops Peter Gabriel throughout the song.

This is a pretty awesome take on the song by Hot Chip and a nice vocal performane by Mr. Gabriel. It is pretty hilarious how he decided to add to the lyrics. After the trademark “It feels so unnatural, Peter Gabriel too. It feels so unnatural to sing your own name.” Good good stuff.

Honestly anything involving Vampire’s name has been awesome. This is a can’t miss cover of 2008 for sure. Download it below:
