Los Campesinos! - Hold On Now, Youngster... (2008)

I already had four of the twelve songs from the album on at least one previous EP, so the album doesn't feel all that new. However, it is a minor complaint, since the songs mostly range from good to great and the new tracks are more of the same hyperactive and playful indie pop that I loved on the EPs. Listening to the album is kind of the equivalent of stuffing your mouth full SweeTarts and drinking a Jolt: explosive, fun, and rather juvenile.

...thought you'd like to know I've been digesting their upcoming "We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed" and am digging it thus far. Thoughts?

I think you deserve to review it in keeping with the series...!

The first few spins have sounded pretty good to me.

Thanks for asking, but write it up if you're feeling it. Another perspective would be great.
