UNDER THE RADAR: Los Campesinos! – “5 Flucloxacillin”

UNDER THE RADAR: Los Campesinos! – “5 Flucloxacillin”.

Los Campesinos!, release their new album Sick Scenes via Wichita Recordings.

The band recorded the album, co-produced by long-time collaborator John Goodmanson and band member Tom Bromley, during Euro 2016 in Fridao, Portugal.

The album exists as a release of pent-up aggression, a document of both personal and societal malaise. But it’s also a celebration of just getting to be a band again, of getting to play music with our friends. Thematically the record is concerned with fumbling for personal relevance while trying to be a better person. Repressing anxiety and attempting to function while constantly maintaining the perfect two-beer buzz. It is set upon a backdrop of non-league football, prescribed medication, and crumbling hometowns.

These truly are the Sickest Scenes.
