New Major Lazer and Ezra Koenig Collab: "Vegan Vampire"

So, Diplo's Major Lazer project is getting an FXX cartoon show, based on the electro-reggae act's macho-rasta persona. And, Vampire Weekend front man Ezra Koenig (the apple of my eye) will voice a character named "Ryland," a 'Vegan Vampire,' which also happens to be the name of Major Lazer's new song. Did you catch all of that? I think I covered everything.

Either way, the Koenig dialogue-laced track is actually another one of Major Lazer's rad, reggae-flavoured dance efforts. The reggae sway is pushed forward by a soulful lead vocal, guitar strums and a deep stomp good enough to make the aforementioned strange details forgivable.
