Los Campesinos! – My Year In Lists

2 04 2008

When I first heard the Los Campesinos! demos about 18 months ago, I thought it was one of the best demos I had ever heard. It was called ‘Hold On Now Youngster’. A few weeks ago, they released their debut album, also called ‘Hold On Now Youngster’ and I have to say it was rather disappointing. Too many of the songs sounded similar, there was far too much reliance on tweeness and not enough on brilliance. Certainly, some of the lyrics are inspired but the lack of musical diversity really holds it back, I think. It was a shame considering how good I thought it could have been. Despite that, the one ‘new’ song to me that really stood out was ‘My Year In Lists’ which they are now releasing as a single. Have a peek at it above.
