MUSIC MANIAC – BELLE & SEBASTIAN

NOW: BELLE & SEBASTIAN – WRITE ABOUT LOVE (2010)

The return of one of my favorite bands. It took years for this new body of work to come out. Many side projects delayed this new CD. Here it is! This time it is classic Belle… Mellow, Groovy, Story Telling, Psychedelic and, this time, Love. They even brought in the adorable actress Carey Mulligan to sing background vocals on the title track. I love it and so will you. All I can say is it is never too late to start on some Belle and Sebastian.  Start here and work back.

THEN: DONOVAN – HURDY GURDY MAN (1968)


Remember I just said Mellow, Groovy, Story telling, and Psychedelic… Well this is where is all began. The fey voice of Donovan influenced Stuart Murdoch of B & S. The orchestrated music also is a big reminder.  Every once in a while it is cool to lay back, and drink some tea and relax into the world of Donovan!
