Vampire Weekend's BAIO to release an EP, download a track now


Somehow amidst all the responsibilities he's got in the wake of Vampire Weekend's excellent third record Modern Vampires of the City, bassist Chris Baio's found time to make a new EP of remixes and dance tracks under his last name. The new EP's called Mira and the Aussie label Future Classic will release it October 28. To celebrate, Baio's released this remix he did of "Regular Town," by the Sydney band New Navy - it's lovely; with its string and flute swirls and bubbly, tropical vibe it sometimes feels like a grooved-up Vampire Weekend. Check it out.
