You Walk Like A Peasant, Los Campesinos!

Okay. Things have been kinda stagnating around hereabouts of late, and like a hiccuping FM station, I'd like to introduce some format changes, or more accurate, diversification. While live music in its recorded and witnessed form is still my bread and butter, I'd like to add some spice, to mix to metaphors. So expect these quicker, blurby featurettes for at least the next couple months (until I get back to the city).

Today, I'd like to introduce you to Los Campesinos!, whom you may know as Arts & Crafts' newest signee. Instead of being a member of the ever proliferating Canadian scene, this group hails from the UK. They're not for everyone, and it's understandable if you're turned off by their frenetic, accented noise pop. However, I'm quite taken by their dense, jubilantly frivolous sound, and I think it straddles the line between pretty and crazy really well. Their EP proper, Sticking Fingers Into Sockets, doesn't come out for a couple of weeks, but you can find a pair of songs the band is sharing below. They play at the Mercury Lounge on August 9th and 10th.
