Romance is Boring

Romance is Boring will do little to change your opinion of Los Campesinos. That's not a slight, just the way it is. I do miss Alexandra, now replaced by the less breathy sister of Gareth, but I'm thinking it's the road across America that gives this version of LC! the heft. They are infectious to their core -- and their aggressive antics have been lassoed in a bit. I'd love to see them replace the Fall-Out Boys in the USA teen angst/melody sweepstakes. That's not a slight, just a hole in the fabric they could fill were they less literate. British punk/pop read books.
