Stereogum Has New Vampire Weekend Track

The folks over at Stereogum have an exclusive on the new Vampire Weekend track, "Ottoman". The track has quite a bit in common with "Walcott", borrows some lyrics from "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa", and despite being easy on the ears never really picks up the pace of some of the bands more danceable tracks. In other words, it kind of feels like a B-Side.

That's not exactly a surprise, considering it's riding on the soundtrack of Nick and Norah's Infinite Mixtape, which appears to be the "indie rock as a zeitgeist" vehicle of the month. While the film looks cute, we feel like we've seen the whole thing just by watching the preview. Does Michael Sera do anything other than play himself? For the sake of the Scott Pilgrim movie, we certainly hope so.
