Los Campesinos! - Romance Is Boring: A-

William Falkner would be proud. That's right. An indie-rock band from The UK has come out with an album with enough confusing time signatures to rival a Mastodon album and enough run-on sentences to melt your frontal cortex. Gareth and the rest of the Campesinos pack Romance Is Boring with enough references and easter eggs to keep you finding new material for years and years (or at least until the next Los Campesinos! album comes out). For some, it will be a clever and engaging endeavor, for others life-changing. At the moment, I'm somewhere in between, but I promise you, on some level, Romance Is Boring will engage your thirst for nostalgia, melancholy, and catharsis.
