Belle & Sebastian Artist Snapshot:

Formed in 1996, and hailing from Scotland, Belle & Sebastian are a musical collective with a penchant for ellipticism, declining to have their pictures on album covers or in the press, shying away from interviews, and never listing their individual names in album credits. This humility is in keeping with the gently bookish vibe the group evoke with their fragile, highly melodic pop tunes. Lead singer/songwriter Stuart Murdoch sounds heavily influenced by '60s popsters like the Beach Boys, Bee Gees, and Hollies. His lyrics, however, are filled with references to contemporary pop culture and a trenchant, acerbic wit that contrasts with the friendly warmth of the music.

Product Notes

Oh to be free and frivolous, like Stuart Murdoch and his extensive cast of players as they engage The Life Pursuit. There''s no "Take Your Carriage Clock and Shove It" or "Get Me Away from Here, I’m Dying" on this disc. Life has gotten easier, it seems, since Belle and Sebastian''s early days. To boot, since 2003''s Dear Catastrophe Waitress, the Belle cast has indulged a more 70s-era set of influences: Isn''t that Norman Greenbaum''s "Spirit in the Sky" beat on the funny "White Collar Boy," a near sequel to "Step Into My Office, Baby"? And how about the T-Rex touch on the opening of "The Blues Are Still Blue"? No worries, Belle and Sebastian retain their gleam flawlessly. A jaunty lift is still in their step, a carefree abandon that charms even as it also reaches to the 70s for the funk-meets-psychedelia, "Song for Sunshine." It''s bright and breezy throughout (the titles tell some of the story: "Another Sunny Day" and "Funny Little Frog"), with memorably decorous, familiar bouncing rhythms marking much of the album. The downtone "Dress Up in You" and "Mornington Crescent" are spare and lovely, wide-open in their pacing. All the same, "For the Price of a Cup of Tea," almost triggers a sing-along with just its name. --Andrew Bartlett--This review refers to the standard edition
