I Knew There Was Pain but Pain Is Not Aching

You'd think I could just stop. You'd think enough is enough. But I'm not that kind of guy--what I love I love fiercely, and the words will be sure to flow and flow. For here it is, a new Los Campesinos! song and video, and you all must take a look and a listen and then we'll chat after....

The Sea Is A Good Place To Think Of The Future from Los Campesinos! on Vimeo.

Nails a certain melancholy, don't it? It's also an answer to those who think LC! can't slow down--they aren't one-trick rhythm ponies, after all. But still, all that force when the voices join in. For that's what you get with these folks, a community, a reality, a long view. And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart. And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course. And all you can do is hum a gorgeous tune and hope maybe someone else wants to stand beside you, if only for a short, short while, and hum along. Sure the song ends, we all drift apart we don't know how. But we do know, there was this.
