Earlier this year, Los Campesinos! Shared a surprise new EP called ‘Whole Dam Body’.
The band’s 2011 album Hello Sadness celebrates its 10th anniversary in November, and to mark the occasion (slightly early) they decided to release a collection of songs from that era.
Written and recorded just before, during, or after the recording of “Hello Sadness”, six of the seven songs on “Whole Demon Body” were originally available through Heat Rash, the 7-inch subscription series that featured the band. Time went on. Original release of the album.
Since then, and until now, none of these tracks have become available digitally. You can buy ‘Whole Demon Body’ as a download over at the official Los Campesinos! bandcamp page.
In a four-star review of ‘Hello Sadness’, Granthshala said: “Children of LC! Still with a fundamentally melodic vibrancy, and with music-writer Tom Campesino’s hands-on maturity! Sonic Youth Thrace, cranky synth.” And giving the record a distinction to combat Gareth’s lyrical suffering in the realm of handclaps, harmonium, violin and bar-room piano.”
Last year, Los Campesinos! The 10th anniversary of his album Romance Is Boring was re-released on Valentine’s Day and there were two concerts in London, where he played the album in its entirety.
