los campesinosGenre: Indie/Alternative/ Pop

Label: Wichita (Bloc Party?)

Something a bit different. And an opportunity to try some cool new WordPress updates, whilst also avoiding doing that awkward art evaluation. Yes I’m back. I posted about these guys before they even formed back July. And as the visually misconstrued pillock I am, I only got reminded by how good they where when i got tempted to their ace new website, having been signed to Wichita, and don’t need to rely on the now so passe myspace. Whilst on their primary colour HTML smorgasbord I watched the video for my previous second favourite song by the gang “We Throw Parties, You Throw Knives”. I now believe it has the best chorus ever… and animated war sequence since that one with the toy soldiers done by Metric. Regarde.

Los Campesinos-We Throw Parties, You Throw Knives

Awesome… huh? I’ve been to a few parties like that, except that god awful Mika was on the stereo.

If you do bother to visit their webiste your will also find another great song (with a bad title verging on emothic length) called “Please Don’t Tell Me To Do The Maths” which sounds almost like a punk song until a glockenspiel pops in and then chorus bit slow bit. The chorus is a bit shit, but you can’t have everything. Still rubs salt in the wound left by not dropping Maths after AS levels.




I’ll try and post some obscure stuff soon. No promises when. Coursework and razzmatazz has a tendency to raise its ugly scaly head when I need it least. At least we can enjoy some “harmonious gluttony” while we can.
