Seven piece Welsh band Los Campesinos! has been remarkably productive and consistent since taking the indie world by storm with their spastically tuneful tweecore singles "We Throw Parties, You Throw Knives" and "You! Me! Dancing!" in 2007. There have been four full-length albums and two EPs since then, wirth the intergender septet still pretending that all their last names are Campesino despite the fact that they have nothing whatsoever to do with insurgent peasants in Latin America.   The new album is called Hello Sadness and its a breakup album that highlights leader Gareth Campesinos' continued growth as a hyperactively tuneful heart-on-sleeve songwriter, backed by a band that rock out in an unassumingly non-rockist way. Tonight, Los Campesino! play Union Transfer with Philadelphia duo Reading Rainbow also on the bill. Info here. "By Your Hand" is below.
