How good were Los Campesinos! in 2013? Put it this way: Avocado, Baby features a children’s choir and it’s still gloriously catchy and fiercely intelligent. When not even caterwauling kids can derail your song, you know you’re on top of your game.
And when you can get both Tony Yeboah and Antonin Panenka into the same lyric (Glue Me), frankly all bets are off:
People laugh, they will call it folly,
but we connected like a Yeboah volley
I requested a room with a view, in the middle of a war between me and you,
and leave with all the dignity of a missed Panenka penalty
