Los Campesinos! released new track (download), playing NYC on 6/22 and 6/23


by John Dabrowski

Who doesn’t get excited for a band with an exclamation point in their name? It is practically a given. On June 22nd, Wichita Recordings’ Los Campesinos! will find themselves in the warm embrace of NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge (tickets), and then on June 23 at Brooklyn Bowl (tickets). The seven piece band made “Tiptoe Through The True Bits” available as a free download last week. The track was recorded during the construction of 2011’s Hello Sadness and could have easily been woven into the album’s fabric. Download the track here.

Yellow Ostrich are the openers for Los Campesinos!. Having recently released the triumphant Strange Land (Barsuk), they look to command the stage with their arsenal of tight, raw tracks. Their sophomore effort demonstrates the group’s fuller sound developed since 2010’s The Mistress (Afternoon Records).
