One could be excused for wondering why Los Campesinos! are still making records at this late date. When they burst onto the scene in 2007 with a bracing batch of singles - that sounded like it took the studio engineer's intense concentration to corral the unbridled excitement and frantic energy that came flying off the band like a technicolor rain shower - they seemed destined to burn brightly for a little while, then burst

Los Campesinos! stay true to brand on Sick Scenes. Their lyrics are poignant and complex, and every track-including the slower tunes-is remarkably catchy. They sound ironic (but very much aren’t), and they maintain a balanced, stagnant sadness while refraining from the feeling of hurtling towards certain doom. Sick Scenes is an album for lost people; on a personal level, it’s exactly what I (and I suspect a lot of other people) need right now. There’s a lot of angry art right now; there’s lots of feisty, spring-into-action art. But there isn’t a lot of art that will plop down by you at a crowded party, go yeah, same, and lament with you for 40 minutes. There isn’t a lot of art that will rocket between tempos and genre influences and come out in the end with something complex, cohesive, and satisfying.
Sick Scenes, the British group’s sixth album, plays like a love letter to aging indie idealism; to the fans who have reveled in this band’s careening pop-punk singalongs, scathing neuroses, and charmingly specific soccer references.
