Indiepop Cat Week - Day Four!

Posted by Rob Simonsen on Thu, Jul 10, 2008 at 10:31 AM

Oh, Los Campesinos!, why do you have to be so awesome? My undying love is no secret, and the more I think about it, the better you get.

Take this cat week, for example. In the video for "Death To Los Campesinos!" everything stereotypically twee is present: rainbows, confetti, balloons, unicorns, and adorable kittens! Hooray! But not content to leave everything as simply a Lisa Frank themed birthday party, dudes flip it into something much more sinister and fun. I won't spoil the ending, but, needless to say, Los Campesinos! are one of the wittiest and smartest indiepop bands around, even if they paint the kittens in their video as not very nice.
