The 8th instalment in the Dinked Archive series is a remastered reissue of Los Campesinos!’ classic 4th album, Hello Sadness. After the huge success of the band’s first 3 albums of emo-tinged twee-pop, the band attempted to make an album of pure pop. Life, however, got in the way, meaning that, despite the album’s perfectly produced pop sound, this is possibly the band’s most lyrically devastating album. Criminally underrated in the band’s back catalog, Hello Sadness is well deserving of its 10th Anniversary treatment – definitely pick this one up if you’re a fan of all things emo and twee-pop! Hello Sadness is reissued on February 18th by the band’s own label, Heart Swells.
The Dinked Archive Edition of Hello Sadness is on 700 limited picture disc with an obi strip hand numbered by the band, A3 poster and printed outer sleeve.
