"Few bands have made as much out of this ideal of enthusiast-as-artist as Los Campesinos!. Formed two years ago at Cardiff University in Wales, the indie-pop septet first grabbed attention on MySpace, but their music embodies some the best elements of the past 30 years of indie music....With boy/girl exclamations (!) befitting a punkier Heavenly/Calvin Johnson collaboration (!!), the lavish instrumentation of Broken Social Scene (whose Dave Newfeld produces)"-Pitchfork (8.4)

RIYL: Broken Social Scene, I'm From Barcelona, Good Shoes
TRY: #1, 2, 9 - DIRTY: #8, 11
