Yeah, I can't help but find his lyrics to be a bit on the "lies" side of things with how fugly of a doucher he looks to be. The idea that he has any relations with anyone of the opposite sex aside from motherhood, seems less than likely to me.

Track-by-track rundown, if you are so inclined.

Los Campesinos, 'Hello Sadness' - First Listen - reviews - NME.COM - The world's fastest music news service, music videos, interviews, photos and free stuff to win

The first single will be Hello Sadness.

And yes, I am talking to Gareth on facebook right now, he's finally decided to reply to the four or five of us who keep posting "Australia???" on all their updates.

"of course we want to play in Australia, but you must understand a) it costs a hell of a lot of money to get 7 people + instruments + crew to Australia, and b) We don't get to just show up at a festival and play, we need to be invited to do so (and then be able to afford it). We're very hopeful that this album will help us find our way to your hemisphere, though. Fingers crossed! G"

Then I said

"thanks for answering gareth - we know it costs a lot and wouldn't be easy logistically - but it is good to know we are in your thoughts! can't wait to hear the album, it will be fantastic i'm sure"

then he said

"very much so. Australia/New Zealand is the one place, above all others, that we've not managed to play that we would love to. G"

and then i said

 
wait for it
 
"we've got your back - whatever that's worth"


Fuck I'm awesome.

Gareth trolls Facebook as Los Camp because he's embarrassed to reveal that he has 12 friends.

They said David was his middle name, or are you referring to something else?

I really like "By Your Hand" and its music video. Don't know if I mentioned that in here or not. There you go. Great chorus.

Same GAF.

Hear the (fucking awesome) lead single Hello Sadness here.

Rumours of their demise into pathetic I-cut-myself-and-trace-the-blood-into-the-shape-of-your-face-ness have been grossly overexaggerated. Two from two so far.

I couldn't resist listening to BYH, but I'm going to stop there.

Will wait for release day. Or leak.

Wait, By Your Hand wasn't the lead single? It had a video and everything.

The link says nothing about it being the lead single, or even a single at all. Friggin' Cobbler.
