Bouncy Bounce Bounce

Which is what I’ve been doing while I listen to my fun music pick of the week, Los Campesinos!. If you’ve not heard of them, they are this ridiculously fun, seven piece, indie pop band from Cardiff, Wales. They play the kind of music which is best served live to maximize the bopping potential. Yes, bopping, everyone does it (those who don’t wish that they did but instead must find solace within their empty empty souls).

I’ve been listening to them alot via Youtube channels at work and deicided to pick up an album tonight, so I got their first one Hold On Now, Youngster which is currently banging along to this post. To sum up it up as succinctly as possible; it’s racy, bangy, charming, happy (in style, not necessarily in the individual song content) and a little bizarre. I don’t think I’ve had as much fun with the lyrics of a song while listening to genuinely great music at the same time.

Anyway, the album is proving a win at the moment. Why don’t you check out some of their tracks on Youtube, their videos tend to mirror their style incredibly well:

Death To Los Campesinos! (cutest video in the world)

We Throw Parties, You Throw Knives

One of us dressed as a zombie
one of us dressed as a pirate
one of us dressed as ninja,
four of us dressed as schoolgirls…

Love it. And the sequel video:
You! Me! Dancing!

And for another random musical pick, why not take a standard deviation from Team Campesinos to these guys:
