New Los Campesinos! Video – “My Year In Lists”

If you like the exclamatory Cardiff pop crew Los Campesinos!, you’ll likely enjoy the stripped-down video for “My Year In Lists” … because it’s basically a series of quick cuts between the septet’s faces. (If you don’t like LC!, this video will likely be very annoying.) There are no Minor Threat references or in-studio rainbow, kitten, and confetti explosions, though we do get an extended metaphor about New Year’s resolutions and this little jab: “I cherish with fondness the day (before) I met you.” Plus, as bloggers, we can’t help but get a little excited when we hear the word “lists.”

“So I always write you letters in multicolors / Decorating envelopes for foreplay / Damn extended metaphors, I get carried away.”
