So I am very bad at promoting an active community for all of you, but I would like to say that you should all download Vampire Weekend's new iTunes session because it is amazing.

I don't speak Spanish, but apparently they ended up playing a couple of songs at someone's house in Barcelona last week.

"Giving Up the Gun" is (arguably) the best song from Vampire Weekend's superb Contra, and the track's music video has the potential to boost it even further. According to an Anthem interview with the clip's co-director, Emmett Malloy, it revolves around a "bizarre-o tennis match" featuring RZA, Jake Gyllenhaal, VW lyrical touchstone Lil Jon, and Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. (Kevin Jonas wasn't available, apparently.)

Talking about the video, Malloy-- who directed the White Stripes documentary Under Great White Northern Lights-- said: "We lit shit on fire. We had RZA presiding over the tennis match. Lil Jon came down to give some tennis tips. Jake Gyllenhaal drank himself out of the competition; Joe Jonas tried, but did not succeed. There was a lot of rigorous competition, pyrotechnics, and a little bit of milk to cap it all off." Wow. Just wow.

The "Giving Up the Gun" video is set to premiere all over the internet in the coming weeks. The Vampire Weekend website has a photo from it up now.

UPDATE: The video will premiere tomorrow on Spinner.

From here.

I'm having weird-ass Royal Tenenbaums/Squid And The Whale flashbacks.
