Today has been one of my favourite days in the history of Los Campesinos!. On the penultimate day of our time at Two Sticks Audio, Seattle, we have been joined by the above people to play on our songs. We’ve felt from the start that the material we’ve been recording is upping the game on anything we’ve released thus far, but thanks to the participation of these people this afternoon and evening we go to sleep tonight with the broadest grins on our faces. Thank you to Jherek and Zac for organising everybody’s participation and to Samantha and Izaak for taking time out of their ridiculously busy musical schedules to play with us. And to Eric for a lot.
This morning we knew what we wanted to achieve, but everybody’s enthusiasm to participate and experiment meant we ended up getting far more out of the experience than we ever could have hoped for. Songs have been transformed and…well, you may be able to tell, I’m very excited.
One hundred, million thank yous, guys. I can’t wait for people to hear all this.
