Los Campesinos! – Sick Scenes
If you’ve heard one Los Campesinos! album, you’ve kind of heard them all. After showing much promise with their earliest releases almost a decade ago, the group revolving around vocalist Gareth got stuck in their restless indie pop-rock sound. Is that a bad thing, though, when you still have fun and still sound like you mean it? This record simply offers more sharp observations and more bouncy music seemingly made with toy instruments, and that’s just fine.
