Narrowing down my favorites for this year was HARD! I’m sure I’ll find even more 2007 releases I adore in 2008… but here’s what has been in obsessively high rotation this year. Note: I still battle with how I can rank EPs versus full albums, or collections of previously unreleased material… but using my current logrhythm, […]
Sometimes I think it takes me waaay too long to come up with my Top 20 albums of a given year. There are a lot of internal debates and arguments that really have no right answer. Really, you reach a point where all the albums are good but how to rank them gets to be […]
Thanks to Curt for ruling and sending me the link to the video for the Los Campesinos! song "The International Tweexcore Underground." Now we finally have proof that they have great hair styles and can totally rock out.
I'm starting to think it's personal. UK cuties (and TIG faves) Los Campesinos! are returning to the US — in fact, they're coming for their west coast debut! — and yet, no Seattle or Portland tourdates have been announced. What if we say please? Pretty please?!?! Pretty please with a cherry and whip cream and […]
The good news is, imaginary Liz favorite band Los Campesinos! have a debut six-song EP due out on Arts & Crafts on July 17th. Huzzah for new summertime good-time fun-time tunes! The other (sorta) good news is that the band is touring. The reason that only merits a "sorta" is the UK band isn't getting […]
I just noticed that imaginary Liz's faves Los Campesinos have the KEXP Song of the Day today with their single "You! Me! Dancing!" Go have a read and listen and see what the (completely worthy) indie-pop infatuation is all about….
Liz, you're gonna be ELATED by this news: your favorite new UK band of the month, Los Campesinos, has just been signed to Arts & Crafts Records, mere weeks after your gush about them on the imagi-blog. I'm thinking your odds of a West Coast tour just grew astronomincally! Get thee to Seattle, Los Campesinos!!!! […]
Stereogum just posted the line-up for Lollapalooza 2007, and while I know imaginary girl Liz hates festivals, Oasis, and port-o-potties (not necessarily in that order), I know she's gonna be tempted because her favorite happy-pop-tacular band of the moment, Los Campesinos, are on the bill!! Well, them and approximately five zillion other bands. I'm not […]
I'm having a hard time containing myself this morning with all the new music fluttering around. Here's the new stuff that's rocking my world today: Los Campesinos! Thank you Curt from Magic Marker Records for highly recommending them to me!!! They may have cool-international-sounding name, but the band is actually from Cardiff, UK and sing […]
