Belle And Sebastian
Either Belle And Sebastian have been listening to the BeeGees in their time off, or they’ve bought a mirrorball for the recording studio. Whatever the reason, a certain amount of spacey disco has rubbed off onto their latest album. It’s not a total departure – there’s still enough acoustic strumming, artful jangleriffing and smart lyrics in breathy voices to satisfy their fans – but this is more experimental than The Life Pursuit or Write About Love. If you crave the classic B&S sound, stick to the earlier stuff; but if you’ve always wanted to know what Belle And Sebastian And One Of The Guys From Daft Punk would sound like, it’s worth a listen.
