Los Campesinos!: Sticking Fingers Into Sockets

Sticking Fingers Into Sockets

Sticking Fingers Into SocketsThey’re like the rockin’, Scottish version of Architecture In Helsinki. You know, so adorable you just want to hug and slap them for being so damn pop-like. I’m sure this cutesy music is meant for sixteen year old girls (coolsixteen year old girls), but I’ll put aside my jock for a minute to absorb the twee bounce of the xylophone and boy/girl vocals that make this ep absolutely irresistible. The fact they do a cover of Pavement’s “Frontwards,” one of the best songs of all time, just adds to my respect for a band I have no right liking, but will carry on carrying on as if my delicate virtue depended on it. Pop!
