Romance Is Boring (10th Anniversary)
The tenth anniversary edition of the third full length album from the epectacular indie-poppers Los Campesinos!
Los Campesinos! seemed so sure of themselves in the beginning. Hold On Now, Youngster… was the instantaneous Greatest Hits fronting as a debut; We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed the intentional evil twin. They carried themselves like critical favourites are expected to, with bulletproof taste and highly quotable interviews, studious enough with the canon to have a good laugh at its expense. By comparison, Romance is Boring appeared to be the quintessential third album identity crisis - significantly longer than what preceded it, bursting with ideas, delving into prog and emo and other places hip bands dared not tread in 2010.
But there was never any reason to question the band’s confidence. Two years after declaring “Death to Los Campesinos!”, Romance is Boring sacrificed short-term security for the bigger picture, reinvigorating the band for the next decade by daring to ask: who did they really think they are?
