"This one is strictly for the lulz," Batmanglij posted. And here I thought it was for a Grammy.
Jepsen's track has also been mashed-up with other big pop tracks with equally sunny dispositions, like Third Eye Blind's "Semi-Charmed Life."

Batmanglij has been otherwise headline-worthy lately for contributing the score to excellent psychological drama "Sound of My Voice," which bowed in indie theaters this spring. Vampire Weekend are back in the studio, writing songs for a follow-up to "Contra," and will be performing at a few concerts and festivals this summer starting next month.
