Belle and Sebastian
What To Look For In Summer

‘What To Look For In Summer’ captures twenty-two live performances from Belle and Sebastian. Recorded during their 2019 tour and including performances on their special ‘Boaty Weekender’ cruise (whatever that is), the tracklist here includes songs spanning their whole career - from their trio of EPs the band dropped in early 2018 right back to classic twee-pop cuts from the Nineties.

Belle and Sebastian
Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant

'Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant' is the fourth record by twee/indie pop band Belle & Sebastian. It's notable for featuring lead vocals from artists other than Stuart Murdoch, something that was only occasionally incorporated on predecessor 'The Boy WIth The Arab Strap'. It brings in more orchestral elements, too, relying on a proper string section.

Belle and Sebastian
Push Barman To Open Old Wounds (Deluxe Edition)

Named after some graffiti in the toilets of a bar in Glasgow, Push Barman To Open Old Wounds was originally released in 2005 and housed all of the EPs and singles released up to that point by Belle And Sebastian, arranged chronologically. It now gets re-issued as a beautiful 3xLP coloured vinyl set. 

Belle and Sebastian
Dear Catastrophe Waitress

I remember splurting my coffee all over the desk when I read that Trevor Horn had produced a Belle and Sebastian LP but the unlikely bedfellows worked well together. Horn drew out of the previous raggle-taggle collective more solid performances but wisely left at home his Frankie Goes to Hollywood effects box so the album just sounds like a Belle and Sebastian album...but more so. Features Actual Pop Hits including the Thin Lizzy aping (and referencing) I'm a Cuckoo.  

Belle and Sebastian
How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 3)

Belle & Sebastian have always excelled in the short format of the EP, so it is excellent to see them returning to the format with a new EP trilogy, named How To Solve Our Human Problems. This is the final one, and it features five lovely natty new songs from this indie heroes. Vinyl EP on Matador.

Belle and Sebastian
How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 1)

Back in the day (eg in the nineties), Belle & Sebastian were renowned for the extraordinarily high quality of their EPs, so what a pleasure to see them returning to the format. How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 1) contains five new songs from the pen of Stuart Murdoch and the fellas, and it's out on 12” vinyl.

Belle and Sebastian
How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 2)

Back in the nineties, Belle & Sebastian were renowned for the extraordinarily high quality of their EPs, so what a pleasure to see them returning to the format with a new trilogy of EPs.. How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 2) includes ‘I’ll Be Your Pilot’, their freshly released song dedicated to Stuart Murdoch’s son. Vinyl EP on Matador.

Belle and Sebastian
Days of the Bagnold Summer

Fiddly-diddly-dee, a new Belle And Sebastian LP. Days Of The Bagnold Summer might be an extremely Belle And Sebastian-type thing to call your record, but it’s actually not a title that the band came up with themselves. Rather, Days Of The Bagnold Summer is Simon Bird’s film of the same name (yes, him from The Inbetweeners), which is itself adapted from a graphic novel by Joff Winterhart. Bird wanted B&S’s 1996 tune ‘Get Me Away From Here I’m Dying’ for the movie, but the band went one better, re-recording both ‘Get Me Away…’ and ‘I Know Where The Summer Goes’ in addition to eleven new tunes.

Belle and Sebastian
Tigermilk

Belle and Sebastian released their first record, 'Tigermilk', way back in 1996, when indie pop was fresh and new and barely a teenager. It's the start of a long songwriting career for Stuart Murdoch, who was the only songwriter for the band at this point, and shows off soft, delicately made songs that hadn't quite become fanciful and twee yet. Also, the album artwork is really something, huh?

Belle and Sebastian
How To Solve Our Human Problems (Parts 1-3)

Back in the day (eg in the nineties), Belle & Sebastian were renowned for the extraordinarily high quality of their EPs, so it's great to see the band returning to the format, perfect for their smart indie pop. How To Solve Our Human Problems has been released as three separate EPs, but is also available all together, either on a single CD or in a vinyl box-set.

Looper
Offgrid:Offline

Looper was formed by ex-Belle and Sebastian bassist Stuart David with his wife, crafting indie-folk-pop tracks that are filled with a warm and playful nostalgia. Originally only available as a download alongside their 5CD compilation These Things, Mute have given Offgrid:Offline it’s own vinyl release with three bonus, and previously unreleased tracks with the download code.

Belle and Sebastian
Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance

Great music; terrible album titles. That's the golden rule of Belle & Sebastian's output, a band notorious for popularising a smart and lyrically persuasive version of pantomimic twee pop. Stuart Murdoch's song-writing gets more intimate here, occasionally losing its show-boating and cheeky feel for songs about personal struggles, such as the frontman's battle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. But this is also a dance record -- or so this band of merry trailblazers choose to believe. Dancing to indie pop isn't all that easy, so here's hoping Girls In Peacetime Want To Have Fun will be different. 

Belle and Sebastian
The Third Eye Centre

Often locking their best tracks away on B sides, Belle and Sebastian compilations are sometimes just as essential as their full length albums. The Third Eye Centre is a follow up of sorts to their earlier Push Barman To Open Old Wounds collection, taking in singles, EP tracks, B sides and even a the Avalanches remix all from their later more pop-centred years.  

Belle and Sebastian
Write About Love

Write about what you know they say and it's probably fair to say that Belle and Sebastian know a little bit about love. The Glasgow collective are known for their romantic yearnings and so here devote a whole album to the subject. Fans of Stuart Murdoch's plaintive quiver might be disappointed that there are lots of guest vocals on the album (Norah Jones and actress Carey Mulligan to name but two) but as usual it is full of his gentle wandering melodies and lovelorn lyrical obsessions.   

Belle and Sebastian
The BBC Sessions

A does-what-it-says-on-the-tin collection from the Glasgow dreamers Belle and Sebastian who after forming on a programme for unemployed musicians found that their early work was on a hotline straight to the BBC. The likes of John Peel and Mark Radcliffe early champions and this record collects all their sessions on such programmes from 1996 to 2001 providing an alternate history of this much-loved band. 

Belle and Sebastian
The Life Pursuit

Having dabbled with a more pop-centered approach on their previous Dear Catastophe Waitress, Belle and Sebastian went even more gung-ho on its 2007 follow up. The Life Pursuit is a confident, playful effort which saw chart bothering songs in the Blues Are Still Blue and the faintly ridiculous White Collar Boy. Once derided as fey wimps, the album announced Belle and Sebastian as leftfield pop stars to be reckoned with. 

Belle and Sebastian
Storytelling

As part of the massive Belle and Sebastian re-issue campaign, this is one of the lesser known releases in their back catalogue. A selection of songs they recorded for the Todd Solondz film of the same name. Not all of them made the final cut for the film but here they are as God (Stuart Murdoch) intended.  

Belle and Sebastian
If You're Feeling Sinister

This, I guess, was Belle and Sebastian's "breakthrough" album. The debut was so limited at the time that in those pre-internet days it took until the release of this before many people caught on. It's one of their most consistent albums with some right crackin' tunes as they say especially stuff like 'Mayfly' which showed they could provide some kind of cheerier version of Nick Drake.  This album, alonside all their others is being re-issued to celebrate a brand new album, on its way soon.
