New Music Report: Los Campesinos!


In this week's New Music Report, Rolling Stone contributing editor Christian Hoard gives you the heads up on his favorite new release. This time around, it's that rambunctious indie pop collective from Wales, Los Campesinos!, and their third album Romance is Boring. The Campesinos crew's first two albums had Hoard declaring that these Welsh kids were among his favorite new acts of the last decade, and while that still holds true, their new album finds the group in a holding pattern stylistically for the first time. Thankfully, because of beefier production and stronger songwriting, Romance is Boring is still a must-hear album by Los Campesinos!, who Hoard describes as "a more shambling, more sexually-frustrated version of the Arcade Fire." For more Christian Rock, and to hear a couple tracks from Romance is Boring, click the New Music Report video above.
