We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed

Performers Los Campesinos!

Arts & Crafts | November 25, 2008 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
The second LP released in 2008 from this Welsh septet continues their cacophonous cavalcade of pounded-out pop melodies, wild keyboards, and rambunctious attitude. Fans of hyperactive Superchunk will rediscover their giddy pogo-pit glee, but WE ARE BEAUTIFUL also possesses a distinctly U.K. brand of snark (softened by a toggling between male-female vocals). On tracks like "Ways To Make It Through The Wall" and "We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed," sweet, catchy choruses collide with guitar squalls and odd signature breaks. And while Campesinos!'s indie rock-cum-punk influences are still evident, DOOMED prophesies a band about to shed them.
