    Hello Sadness

    Hello Sadness is the fourth record by Los Campesinos. Its 10 tracks cover what we are coming to recognize as core Los Campesinos concerns: love, loss, heartbreak and football (always football). But this is a record thats wiser and more focused than its predecessors, confident in its abilities and clear in its aims.


    Recorded earlier this year in Girona, Spain by producer John Goodmanson, responsible for the septets previous two albums, 2008s We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed and 2010s Romance is Boring, Hello Sadness is Los Campesinos at their most melodic, direct and exhilarating. It is an honest, bare-bones documentation of two people breaking up and trying not to break up in the process, and is simultaneously the most focused collection by Los Campesinos to date.


    Ever present are the wry observations, the razor-sharp wordplay and the bands varied instrumentation, combined with some of the saddest, world-weary confessionals Los Campesinos have ever recorded. Indeed, Hello Sadness is wise beyond its years, exhibited not only in the sincerity, poetry and honesty of its lyrical content, but by the instrumental dynamics of its songs.

    Why There Are Mountains

    Barsuk Records is pleased to reissue Cymbals Eat Guitars' stunning debut Why There Are Mountains on vinyl. Originally self released in 2009, Why There Are Mountains seemed to appear out of nowhere to massive critical acclaim (partially thanks to Pitchfork bestowing the album with the much coveted Best New Music designation) and took the indie-rock world by storm. The band spent the following year and a half touring the world and sharing the stage with Los Campesinos!, The Thermals, The Flaming Lips, The Hold Steady and more before releasing their Barsuk debut Lenses Alien in 2011.

    The Golden Spike (Discontinued)

    After releasing two singles, the jaunty One of Two and new-no-wave classic Molten, the Yorkshire trio Sky Larkin released an EP, Swit Swoo featuring covers of songs by Travis Morrison, Patti Smith, Queens of the Stone Age and Jake Thackray in the spring of 2008. In May of the same year the band recorded their debut album in Seattle, WA. Following in the footsteps of long-time touring partners Los Campesinos!, the band chose to work with producer John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Death Cab For Cutie, Nada Surf) and the result is The Golden Spike. Pressed on 180g virgin vinyl in a heavy card gatefold sleeve.

    ...And The Ever Expanding Universe

    Out of the serenity of Milton, Ontario returns their most ambitious export, the young sextet known as The Most Serene Republic. Their third full-length, ...And The Ever Expanding Universe is produced by Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals, Los Campesinos!) and it shows the band confidently striding forward with a more mature, diverse and exhilarating sound.


    With two acclaimed albums and an EP already under their belts, these just now 24-year old musicians have already been performing together for a half-dozen years. Very much a product of their wide ranging personalities, the band is led by Ryan Lenssens classical piano and obsession with musical history, and singer/lyricist Adrian Jewetts Joycian stream-of-conscious lyrics and larger then life stage personality. The entire bands excellence with their instruments is undeniable and is proven both live and on album.

    Ode To The Inverse Of The Dude (Discontinued)

    When producer David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Los Campesinos!) agreed to helm the latest High Strung album, a strange/wonderful meeting was set to take place. In the height of a brutal Canadian winter, the High Strung brought a decidedly different batch of songs with them to the small church-studio of the legendary indie producer. Josh Malerman (songwriter) has written his first group of personal numbers, songs that addressed bizarre psychological states as well as revealing/comforting ideas of a man turning himself inside out, the idea of celebratory self-examination.


    Ode to the Inverse of the Dude sounds a lot like what it's about; there's no doubt Newfeld stretched a band who was ready to be stretched and the outcome is a fantastic/blissful proclomation. It's an exploratory album, combining dreamy sounds and lyrics with the magnificence of the rock band that the High Strung is. The album is an honest original, but it's not a puzzle, it's a matter of heart. Songs like ôGuilt is How IÆm Built,ö ôStanding at the Door of Self-Discoveryö and ôOut of Character,ö not only adhere to the theme but feel and sound like a genuine self-evaluation where the subject is equal parts excited and frightened about their discoveries. Derek Berk and Chad Stocker, one of the countryÆs most colorful/dynamic rhythm sections, do not disapoint as they bring to life this coming together of wonderful artists. This record is a musical/pyschological triumph for both a producer who has worked his magic into the hearts of millions and a band who gets better with every album.

    Smith Westerns

    Rummaging through 1970s glam, Phil Spector teen-pop, and Nuggets garage-punk with the youthful abandon of kids finding new toys in the attic, the Smith Westerns' self-titled debut exudes an earnestness almost as pure as its recording levels are deafening. Their simple, sweet choruses about boys and girls in love could spike the punch at a 1970s TV show school dance.


    When singing guitarist Cullen Omori, his bassist brother Cameron, second guitarist Max Kakacek, and a drummer known as Hal have the tunes to make themselves heard over their vintage aesthetic, The Smith Westerns' teenage kicks are hard to beat. Take string-swept glam ballad Be My Girl. which softly punctuates one of the year's most wrenchingly innocent hooks with somewhat risque pick-up lines. There's less lyrical subtext, but no less raunchy production, on the glam-rock boogie of Girl in Love, a come-on cursorily addressing the fleetingness of youth. It's only fitting that the Smith Westerns both look and sound like the Black Lips' good-bad not-evil twins.


    These guys are sort of literally true to their school, garage-rocker Miss Alex White is a fellow Northside College Prep magnet-school alum, and their time on the road with the likes of Jay Reatard and Nobunny is evident on fine 60s-style frat-rocker Gimme Some Time. With fuzzed-out xylophone, frenetic opener Dreams suggests the group's most recent tour with Girls and Los Campesinos! might serve them better for a follow-up. Diamond Boys almost earns its piano on the strength of its adolescent grandiosity, but We Stay Out lets lo-fi become the end rather than the means, with a guitar line that sounds like a bee buzzing underwater.
