    Hi Tsuru,

    On behalf of XL Recordings and Vampire Weekend, we would kindly ask you not to post copies of "Contra" on your site (or any non-preview tracks from Vampire Weekend's new album – street date 11th Jan UK & 12th Jan US).

    We do appreciate that you are fans of / are promoting Vampire Weekend, but the label and artist would greatly appreciate your co-operation in removing your links to the pirate files in question.

    Thank you for respecting the artist's and label’s wishes and, if you / your readers want good quality, non-pirated, preview tracks, then a full length version of "Horchata" is available for fans and bloggers to link to / post / host etc at http://www.vampireweekend.com … .. for further details of the new album, on-line promotions, videos and 2009 / 2010 shows, check-out the official site, as well as the band’s Myspace at http://www.myspace.com/vampireweekend and XL’s YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/XLRecordings http://www.youtube.com/user/XLRecordings .. .. and keep an eye on these official sources for details of further news, preview material and on-line promotions.

    With Thanks & Regards,

    Dear Web Sheriff!
    Many thanks that you protect the web community against such dramatic copyright violations as posting a link. I am sure that Vampire Weekend is proud that you have such a good look on a well known music blogger I'm sure the fans of th band will also appreciate it and certainly buy more CDs. After all you act out of respect for intellectual property.

    By the way you know the fable of the hare and hedgehog? No? Have a look on Youtube …

    Sincerely, a big fan of internet vigilantes
