Customer Review

on 17 December 2011
Not only does Hello Sadness mark Los Campesinos' 4th record in as many years; it also marks their 4th consecutive great record. Over these years the band have shown a remarkable evolution from the looser, energetic "Hold On Now Youngster" to a tightly produced indie-pop sound on this record.

This is a concept album looking at the low and intense period that follows a break up and Gareth Campesinos!' lyrics remain as uncompromisingly honest and excellent as ever.

While the subject matter may sound depressing the songs are most definitely not. Opener "By Your Hand" has the most infectious chorus the band have written, the thrilling guitar lines (and a refreshing chorus sung by new member Kim) in "The Blackbird, The Dark Slope" will have you cranking up the volume and the build within "To Tundra" can be a real hair-standing moment.

Although an accessible album, for me, the album does benefit from repeated listens. Overall highly recommended!
Also, be sure to check this band out live!
