The six piece indie pop band, Los Campesinos, that stormed the US charts all the way from Cardiff, Wales has just released their latest record “Avocado, Baby.” This is nothing short of their typical feel-good records with all the glitz, drums and glamour of their previous records. The video is even more enthralling with it’s warped gameshow hosted by none other than lead singer David Gareth who gives us his best Dick Clark impression.
Los Campesinos! are: Gareth Campesinos! (vocals), Jason Campesinos! (drums), Kim Campesinos! (keys, vocals), Neil Campesinos! (guitar), Rob Campesinos! (multiple instruments, vocals), and Tom Campesinos! (guitar).
Recorded in Bethesda, Wales in June, NO BLUES was produced by John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Nada Surf, Blonde Redhead) and Tom Campesinos!. The album is wholly melodic, incorporating sounds and textures new to Los Campesinos!
