Los Campesinos!: TAS In Session
Over the last eight years, the music of Los Campesinos! has straddled both the irreverent and serious, the wise and the witty. Frontman Gareth "Campesinos" Paisey's lyrics briskly percolate with personal and pop culture references, leapfrogging from soccer puns to romantic strife.
The Welsh band's latest album, No Blues, might be their strongest to date and Los Campesinos! has been touring steadily since its release, recently announcing a batch of UK and European festival dates for this spring and summer including Live at Leeds, the Truck Festival and Festival No. 6.
Earlier this winter the sextet stopped by FUV and TAS for a session and a conversation with The Alternate Side's Alisa Ali. Watch videos of Los Campesinos! in Studio A below, listen to the songs and interview now in the FUV Vault or hear the band's session this Friday, March 7, on TAS on 91.5 WNYE at 11a.m. EST, also streaming online.
