I HOPE MY HEART GOES FIRST!
Los Campesinos!. 11 days. They made this beautiful fucking piece of art. They don't call it a real CD, just an "EEP". What the fuck ever, this album is their best, in my opinion. Angry, loud, dance-y, and full of welsh kids singing in british accents, with such inventive and personal lyrics you'll be screaming them and not really knowing who they're talking about, but god damn you can RELATE. Pitchfork gave this an 8.3, so I promise I'm not being stupid and just trying to throw a shitty album at you (well I mean if you follow pitchfork I kind of hate you on principal). It's messy, lovely, and it's sort of like when you get angry and you have paints and a canvas and you just throw a shit ton of paint on the canvas and you get something really pretty and awesome, but you're also covered in paint and it's fucking wonderful. Scuffed up, rough around the edges, angsty, love-hating, bitter, and everything you could want in an album to get you pumped on hating everything and loving it. I'm going to steal a genre label from one of my friends in Danananykroyd and call this fight pop. That's what it is. Oh, and there's a mini epic ballad up in there too, for learning how to play on guitar and mumble along, so it appeals to the fucking hipsters out there too.
PS I AM NOT ON THE ALBUM COVER HA HA FUNNY REDHEAD JOKE
