Los Campesinos! - Black Session

This is really good. It's a recording from French radio of a mighty performance from the brilliant Los Campesinos! It was recorded and broadcast live just a couple of days ago on 3rd March on the Lenoir show. The set is made up mostly of material from the bands debut album "Hold On Now Youngster" which was released last month through Wichita and can be purchased HERE. One of the highlights on here though is the cover version of Pavements "Frontwards" which sounds just totally excellent. I know Los Campesinos! are getting a lot of press at the moment but I think they deserve every bit of it.

1. Broken heartbeats sound like breakbeats
2. Don't tell me to do the math(s)
3. Death to Los Campesinos!
4. This is how you spell "Hahaha, we destroyed the hopes and dreams of a generation of faux-romantics"
5. Drop it doe eyes
6. The international tweexcore underground
7. Knee deep at ATP
8. My year in lists
9. Frontwards
10. We are all accelerated readers
11. ... and we exhale and roll our eyes in unison
12. You! Me! Dancing!
13. We throw parties, you throw knives
14. Sweet dreams, sweet cheeks
