Latest Los Campesinos!

Here’s some new Los Campesinos! for you. It was new to me anyway. Unless they played it when I saw them at The Spitz back in March, but in any case I can’t quite recall it. The track is Knee Deep at ATP and is apparently an account of a particular love interest had by a member of Los Campesinos! at that festival. So, great festival, good song. You wouldn’t get anyone writing a song about the V festival, would you?

This was played when they were studio guests of Marc Riley on his Brain Surgery show on BBC 6 Music a week or so ago. They also did a live version of You Throw Parties, We Throw Knives.

In other Los Camps news, it sounds like they’ve been recording their new album in Wales. At least that’s what I can discern from their sporadically updated blog. They’ve also had an EP - Sticking Fingers Into Sockets - released by their North American label Arts & Crafts. This contains the songs from the two limited 7 inches that have been put out over here by Wichita plus a couple of other tracks. This (plus any further singles?) should keep us going till the debut album is released early next year.

Buy the You! Me! Dancing! 7 inch (the We Throw Parties… one has sold out) or the Sticking Fingers Into Sockets EP.

    There’s another new song done live in session, this one for Radio 1’s Wales opt-out, at http://corporateanthems.blogspot.com/2007/07/do-maths.html (recorded by me, yes) The next single was being recorded in Wales, but they’re currently in Toronto at David Newfeld’s own studio working on the album.
