Los Campesinos! Put ‘Hand-Picked Selection of Records’ Together For One Lucky Fan

Los Campesinos! @ Bowery Ballroom

Los Campesinos! @ Bowery Ballroom

Now here’s a brilliant tour tie-in that no one’s thought of before: Los Campesinos! have announced plans to compile a box of carefully-curated records–everything from “bargain bin” selections to “a friend’s band’s signed pressing”–as they drive across the U.S. next month. To find out how to scoop up the set, you’ll have to follow the band’s escapades here, as they document the back story of each 12-inch. Here’s hoping it’s as interesting as their s/t-supported Cardiff guide.
