Los Campesinos, the well-travelled and well-heeled band that used to inspire the use of the word twee like there was no tomorrow, have a new album out titled Hello Sadness. How does a band that used to be at the forefront of a happy-go-lucky twee movement go from that to an album titled Hello Sadness? They grew. And they grew up. The most ironic of outcomes for a happy band is to become dark and serious, and keep everyone guessing. Guess what? They're pulling it off, in spades. Check out Los Campesinos on Hello Sadness for yourself.
