Belle and Sebastian

The new Belle and Sebastian CD the Life Pursuit is excellent, harking back to the classic B&S themes - based around Stuart Murdoch's student-not-student existence, and quirky chat over cups of tea in the local cafe. Stays the right side of twee, and has some really strong tunes. Highly enjoyable - and makes me feel like it's summer in these cold grey days.

The chocoreve website still has some great B&S live recordings, and I can definitely recommend the October 1998 Paris show if you are shorter on bandwidth (or patience, as I am).
