Vampire Weekend's Baio - "Mira"


In the spare time he apparently still has some of, Vampire Weekend's bassist Chris Baio also makes dance music under his own last name. A couple days ago, he announced a new EP called Mira and accompanied the news with a remix; now here's our first taste of new and completely original music, the record's title track. "Mira" is a bass-heavy, vaguely Balearic dance jam, its minimal textures allowing Baio plenty of space to incorporate some chopped-and-screwed vocal samples and heavily edited keyboard sounds. Check it out - the rest of the record's out October 28 courtesy the Australian label Future Classic.
