Los Campesinos!

Ever since Panic! At The Disco exploded like puss-filled boil all over the charts/popular culture, I've been suspicious of bands with an exclamation mark in their name. Luckily the wonderful wonderful wonderful Los Campesinos! restored my faith in punctuation.

The tunes show marks of adolescent fun in a Go!-Team-minus-samples style mixed with the deadly cool lyrical wit of early Belle & Sebastian help propell the songs in the most charming way possible couple this with lofi riffs straight out of the Yo La Tengo School of Tuneful Noise and LC! elevate themselves effortlessly above the clutter of heartless noise-pop outfits being groomed in the wings. Wichita are rarely wrong with their signings and I'm pretty sure Los Campesinos will do them proud.

The new single is free to download from their funtastic website here and further couple of tracks can also be found below:

Los Campesinos! - Don't Tell me to do the Math(s)
Los Campesinos! - You! Me! Dancing!
