Formed in Cardiff in 2006, Los Campesinos! signed to Wichita later the same year, after their demos and early gigs created a considerable buzz. Following a number of single releases, the band released their debut album ‘Hold On Now, Youngster…’ in February 2008, wasting no time with the follow-up, ‘We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed’, which came out in October the same year.
Album number four, ‘Hello Sadness’, is now ready, and due for release on 14 Nov. Ahead of all of that, we asked guitarist Neil Beale to put together a Powers Of Ten playlist for us. Here’s what he told us about his selections: “It’s been a while since I had to compile a playlist AND write about the songs.

Are they meant to reflect my music taste? Does anyone even care? Anyway, after about ten minutes of scouring Spotify I came up with a suitable playlist. A friend and I run a kind of club night in Cardiff where we just play American indie rock and post-hardcore and stuff that people generally don’t want to hear on a night out. I think most of my choices came from that…”
