Los Campesinos!

Hype!

By Your Hand
Songs About Your Girlfriend
Hello Sadness
Life is a Long Time
Every Defeat A Divorce (Three Lions)
Hate For The Island
The Black Bird, The Dark Slope
To Tundra
Baby I Got The Death Rattle
Light Leaves, Dark Sees pt 2

Quote:
Hello Sadness is ten songs of love, loss and heartbreak nail-gunned to a back-drop of broken, tangled bodies, creeping, dead-eyed animals, suffocating, looming shadows and World Cup exits. It is an honest, bare bones documentation of breaking up and trying not to break up in the process. Hello Sadness.
Visit Los Campesinos! � Store for more info, plus preorder stuff.

I have no song to tide us over but wanted to make the thread.

The album title, cover, song titles and blurb, plus the exit of Aleks, do not excite me all that much. I liked The Sea... but I don't want a whole album of downtrodden emo tunes. Sounds like there's not much new going on thematically/lyrically. But! This is just some stupid preemptive internet opinion based on not much so I will reserve judgement until there's a leak I hold the album in my hands.

One of the t-shirts



Looks like the album cover of a really well-loved indie album that I have not heard nor know the name of. Lemel probably had it as his dp at one stage.

At any rate, damn it's going to be an exciting few months.

Are you talking about Lift Yr Skinny Fists?





As for Los Camp!, it's like they have some weird bipolar disorder or something. They've gone from the happiest band to ever be happy to...uh...Helllllllllooooo, Sadness!

Yes, that's the one.

Exactly. The reason I loved Romance is Boring so much so immediately was largely due to the unbridled energy in the first three tracks, and their debut is obviously a ton of fun. But I spose they had to grow up eventually, can't keep punching out You! Me! Dancing! forever.

Excellent.

Even on Romance is Boring they were edging a bit over to the depressing side. Have you ever READ the lyrics to In Medias Res?

Agreed, which is why I was a bit worried we'd end up with an album full of The Sea... type tracks.

I have. But I fucking love those lyrics.

If you were given the option of dying painlessly in peace at forty-five
But with a lover at your side
After a full and happy life
Is this something that would interest you
Would this interest you at all

Oh it's a wonderful song, and I don't want anyone to think I'm being negative. I'm super excited about this album, I'm just completely taken aback by how much of an about face they've taken since the days of You! Me! Dancing! whatever the name of that song is.

Maybe they stuck their fingers into sockets too many times.

No interesting goodies for preordering = no preorder for this deputy.

Anyway, this will be an adventure. A full album of "The Sea" type tunes would be just fine to me. And I'm glad it's out in November. These cats remind me of the cold.

But all I can see
Is five hundred years dead set ahead of me
Five hundred behind
A thousand years in perfect symmetry

You don't think a t-shirt, DVD, and a CD of demos are interesting goodies? What were you expecting, a farewell pair of Harriet's panties?

My only issue is the shipping cost. Unless I'm doing something wrong, the cheapest is some FedEx bullshit for $18?

No thanks.

That'd be a start.

No, a bundle is something entirely different. That's all well and good, and the HONY demos would certainly be cool to hear. But oftentimes if you preorder an LP, you get limited colored vinyl or a bonus 45 completely gratis. Would've been cool to see what they came up with along those lines.

I'm not complaining at all. It's still going to get a first day purchase.

That's precisely why I've never ordered a thing from A&C's site. It's not like their stuff isn't abundant in every store anyway.

$53 for shit I will probably look at / listen to once? Yeah, $12 for the CD only on release day is fine by me, sorta sick of this band anyways.
