Red Bull has started a new feature where they take an artist and detail their Top 5 Worst Breakups and associate songs to go with the stories. First up was the lead singer of Los Campesinos!, Gareth. Read his first story below to get a taste and head over to Red Bull to read the whole feature!

Modest Mouse – ‘Tundra/Desert’
“The week following my first breakup, I got an iPod for the first time. There’s no poetry or ‘music saves’ sentiment in this; it just happened like that.

Buses only ran twice a day from my town to her village and so I arrived, as I always would, midway through morning television, generally the ITV chat-show, ‘Trisha.’ In the week since we’d separated, she’d moved a portable television into her bedroom. I, 18 years old, surveyed the room for any indication that a male other than me had been there watching TV in her bed. She was dressed neatly, like she never usually would be at that time.

I let her listen to a song on my new iPod. I chose this song and I wanted her eardrums to burst when Isaac screamed ‘AWWW SHIT’ at 1:40 and the guitars wailed in.” -Gareth Campesinos!

STREAM – New Lee Bannon Mix: Big Apple Walking Tour

December 20th, 2013

“This is music mostly inspired by recent 6pm freezing walks, with no sun, running errands and mini adventures in NY. I created the mix with tracks I’ve been listening to lately in Brooklyn. The reason for the calm of the mix is because 80% of the music/sounds I hear are so aggressive that this acts to balance life out and has been the score to most of my downtime recently.” -Lee Bannon
