Los Campesinos: Arcade Fire for British Optimists
I recently got the much-acclaimed Los Campesinos record from my favorite retail source:
Sam Goody (with 50% mark-up.)
It's a fun record. The songs are enjoyably short. '50s/'60s AM radio length. And as if that wasn't already enough for Eric, they're adorably British!
The best comparison is an upbeat version of the Arcade Fire-- think No Cars Go sung by Brits wearing rainbow hipster gear instead of all black. There's something else in there too, but I can't quite place a finger on it.
Anyway, enjoy and then go download it from Sam Goody at the mall. ($18.99 + tax.)
