Well, this isn't transparent at all. Awful title; One Is The Loneliest Number would have been more prescient.

But hey, I haven't heard a note of it yet.

The title is indeed lame. Way too emo for my taste, without the sense of humor found in WABWAD.

But of course evolution/the band getting more serious isn't necessarily a bad thing; they're never going to be as fun or energetic as their first album (which you can say about many great bands).

Like U2.

Because I saw this thread and because this band has been hyped here a lot, I am now listening to Romance Is Boring. I like it so far.

No one responded to my post about Heat Rash back in Random a couple weeks ago, so I'll mention it again:

has anyone else heard the two Heat Rash tracks? They're really very good, and I think that Four Seasons could be a glimpse into Hello Sadness. Unfort, I couldn't find that on YouTube, but the other song was available. It sounds more like typical Los Camp! but also reminds me a lot of The Cure's In-Between Days. Or like Pavement covering it.

I didn't respond because I hadn't heard the tracks.

That's not a bad song at all.

Hello Sadness > the original title, which was Jism and Blues.

I would much have preferred Jism and Blues.

If Hate For The Island is about Australia, I'm done.

First taste

By Your Hand - Los Campesinos! - YouTube

I like it... but it's missing... something. Like it lacks the traditional LC! energy. (But that's based off one half-tipsy listen)

But who is the brunette? She's amazing

Okay, I really like it. That bridge is to die for (the lead-in to the chorus I mean). Best part. God I wish more bands would record albums without taking two-three-year-plus breaks.

They're offering a free DL of the track and they also announced some tour dates.

Philly is one of them.

Love that artwork.

As this is the first song on the album, I don't really want to ruin the experience by hearing this early.

Really good. Really, really good.

And that's just how Ellen looks in the video.

Shit, there's a chance I could make one of the NYC shows. That's one of the weeks I've been looking at for a visit.

Alright, my resistance lasted for about 5 minutes.

I guess we can put to rest theories that this band is on the downturn. Great song. Though it doesn't have the lead track power of In Media Res.

What's interesting is that Kim is featured even more heavily, but appears to have improved on the b. vocals and keyboards. Nice. Still not a looker, but whatever.

It's also odd that Harriet's departure was just recently announced (and doesn't she still have a couple shows to play), but she still didn't make it into this video? Hmm...

Also love the little Claycourt-in-Your-Jew-Room vocal cameo from Neil Campesinos.
