misunderstruck: (headphones)
Generally, it's been a crappy day.

However, the opening line of a news item on Pitchfork caught my eye. The author said something about declaring some Welsh seven-piece group called Los Campesinos his new favorite band, using words like "bouncy" and "riot-grrl infused pop" along with a favorable comparison to Bis. (Kate, take note!) I was intrigued. So I went here and downloaded the two mp3s available. I am hooked. The band totally saved my mood today. I can't wait until their EP comes out next month. And then they're playing in NYC a week after my birthday!

(You can also stream those songs (plus two more) from the band's MySpace page.)



And there are nifty animated videos as well!




Of course, if you prefer your videos to be the traditional "Hey, let's watch the band play the song!" sort of thing, there are plenty of those as well.

This band makes me want to start making mix tapes again.

Music:: Los Campesinos
Mood:: 'bouncy' bouncy
