Show Post: In House #1530
Officially, Belle & Sebastian's upcoming release The Life Pursuit is their seventh overall, though it's just the second in a phase that has marked a dramatic sonic makeover for the band. Indeed, the new music is barely recognizable when set along side "phase one" Belle & Sebastian releases like Tigermilk and If You're Feeling Sinister... The surprising thing is that it's worked pretty well, breathing new life into a band that seemed a bit bored with itself by 2000's Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant. Moreover, the new release finds them back on Matador, where they never really should have left to begin with. The Life Pursuit is due out February 7th.
In House #1530.
Focus: Upcoming release from Belle & Sebastian, The Life Pursuit, plus Beck covers Nick Drake, and new music from the Minus 5, the Decemberists and more.
