Los Campesinos! "Hold On Now Youngster" (2008)

This is a record that already sounds incredibly dated.  And part of that is that it could have come from no other decade.  There's that frantic sense of kids just trying to have fun... but trying too hard.  That seemed to come about after 9/11.  The post punk urgency reduced to pure signifiers.  They were a bit of thing when this was released, but seem to have already faded into the footnotes of the time.
