Welsh band Los Campesinos! were recently in NYC playing one of a handful of U.S. shows in support of new album No Blues. While they were here, the band made time to perform the ninth installment of our BV Studio Sessions recorded at Grand Street Recording in Brooklyn. They played "Cemetery Gaits" and "What Death Leaves Behind," both from new album. Check it out:

Big thanks to Jessica Amaya, Albert Amaya for making this look (and sound) great. Much appreciation to Chris La Putt as always.

I was going to yell, and curse, but then I realized this comment really just made me sad, because I realized that you didn't get it. He's not a good singer, but that's not the point. Everything he sings is imbued with passion and he really means what he's singing, and it's the not-quite-there-ness of his voice that hammers this home.
