A quick post from Kansas, and some music

Things are going well here in Kansas, I've had two days on the job and am enjoying it! I haven't had much of a chance to post much, but I'm liking it here.

Anyways, here's a band that I've heard about a little while ago, listened to again, and didn't know why I didn't recommend it here. Here is Los Campesinos! from England. These guys are "indie pop," meaning whatever you want it to, I guess. Listening to them, I hear hints of New Pornographers, Apples in Stereo, a little Vampire Weekend, with a few other bands thrown in for good measure. So check them out!

Oh, and don't tell Charczuk that I'm posting while I'm sitting right next to him. It might weird him out.

I don't know why, but Kansas is one of those states that I kind of forget exists, even though I've been there.

It's the rectangle one with the farms, right?

That's some pretty upbeat music considering how British indie rock at least seem to sound all the same. Nice find!

I'm finally giving them a listen and I like it! I don't care much for Henry Rollins either ;)

wm - Yeah, there's not really too much outside of KC. Lots of wheat.

sornie - I thought the same thing!

marin - I'm glad you liked it! :)
