Los Campesinos, Yellow Ostrich, Moonlight Bride

When: Wed., June 27, 8:30 p.m. 2012

The Campesinos have undergone some turnover of late and now appear on the verge of having their reputation overshadow their momentum. On their latest, Hello Sadness, lolling mid-tempo sub-Pavement indie guitar rock subsumes the ebullient hand-claps and gang-singing energy of their first two terrific albums. It's still well crafted, but the plaintive whining of frontman Gareth Campesinos! now overpowers the sweet female vocals and engaging blend of precocity and pace. No longer all that distinctive, they're another instrument-heavy indie-pop act complaining about their love life. LWith Yellow Ostrich, Moonlight Blue. —Chris Parker
