Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij mashes up Beirut and Katy Perry
In today’s “No, I Never Wondered What That Would Sound Like” news, a member of Vampire Weekend mashed Beirut’s “Scenic World” with Katy Perry’s “Hot N Cold”. Vampy Weeks guitarist/producer Rostam Batmanglij posted “Scenic Cold” on his personal Tumblr, stating that while it’s an old mix he’s played at DJ shows, he’d never released it to the world before now. Good thing he finally did, because with the Apocalypse just 17 days away, we may have almost missed out on this unlikely combo. Stream or download the track below.
