Album Review: Los Campesinos! - 'Hello Sadness'

Clinging to childish trappings, but with a morbid slant

Los Campesinos! - Hello Sadness: Wikipedia Album Entry

Hello Sadness is the 3rd full length album from Indie Pop band Los Campesinos. It is set to be released on Nov. 15, 2011. A download was made available to those who had preordered the album on November 4th, 2011.

The band says of Hello Sadness: "Hello Sadness is ten songs of love, loss and heartbreak nail-gunned to a back-drop of broken, tangled bodies, creeping, dead-eyed animals, suffocating, looming shadows and World Cup exits. It is an honest, bare bones documentation of breaking up and trying not to break up in the process. Hello Sadness."
