So this week there was only one choice for song of the week and has to be…

THERE ARE LISTED BUILDINGS – LOS CAMPESINOS!

It seems like with this the first single from there as of yet untitled third album due for release in early 2010 that they are returning to the sound that made me fall in love with them in the first place. A lovely pop song that combines great guitar hooks and a beautiful melody and also incorporates a brass section for the first time in an LC! song  this manages to take there sound to a completely different level rather than just leaving it as a lifeless indie song (but i’m sure i’d love it even if it didn’t have the brass section in). Why isn’t this stuff top of the charts (probably because it’s only being released on vinyl) Lady Gaga doesn’t know how to write a good chorus, as far as choruses go this one is fucking awesome.I still don’t think that they been able to lose their twee image but that is certainly not a bad thing. Look forward to buying it when i see them in Manchester at the end of the month.
