[Current Music |You, Me, Dancing - Los Campesinos!]

I'm not normally one of those who spend ages blogging about new bands they've discovered - I'm more likely to moan about how things were all done better ages ago and grumble away from my keyboard to put some Talking Heads on.

But I'll make an exception this time.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you.... Los Campesinos!

Ok, so a quick confession here. I do know Gareth, who's part of the band, although not very well. He started writing for the paper towards the end of my time there. I've not listened to any of their stuff before now as my speakers have been broken, and also because I had a nagging worry that they might not be particularly good. Over the years I've had various friends in various bands and I've never quite been able to say: "Yeah, I really liked your stuff" to them.

Well, not anymore. Los Campesinos! are utterly fantastic and I've not stopped listening to their tracks since downloaded them. It's made me think indie guitar music may have a future.

Incidentally, if anybody wants to to recommend me some stuff to download now I have working speakers it would be much appreciated.

Hey, this is really good!

Err...one of my Californian f-listers recommended The Ditty Bops (http://www.myspace.com/dittybops) recently, and I do quite like them.
