Boomkat Product Review:
*LIMITED EDITION NEW ALBUM WITH DOCUMENTARY DVD, 30-PAGE 'ZINE, POSTER AND BADGES, ALL HOUSED IN 14CM BY 19CM BOX* It's only been five months since their debut album came out, but already, peppy UK indie jetsetters Los Campesinos! are serving up their second album. It seems fairly ludicrous to be churning records out at this sort of rate, but it seems to come fairly naturally to the band. Reportedly, earlier on in the year they went into the studio with John Goodmanson in Seattle with the intention of producing an EP, but the session went so swimmingly, that they felt they had a strong enough selection of songs to go the whole hog and call it their sophomore album. For most acts, this would be a fairly disastrous enterprise, but to their great credit, Los Campesinos! have well and truly pulled it off. Not only is the package beautifully presented (it's like a mini boxset) the ten tracks making up the album itself are among the finest the band have recorded to date. They sound so much more mature here than on their debut, and musically they meld chord sequences inspired by early Pavement with an Arcade Fire-like grandeur - and what's more, they don't sound like a bunch of try-hard divvies in so doing. Smart, witty and starting to break away from the tweeness that tainted some of their previous recordings, Los Campesinos! are starting to sound pretty special.
