Overview

After the success of the most recent Belle And Sebastian album, The Life Pursuit, band leader/singer/songwriter Stuart Murdoch decided to pursue his dream of writing a rock musical scored for female singers. After auditioning vocalists via Internet contests, he made his choices and, with all members of Belle And Sebastian backing him up, recorded this breathtaking record. It combines the strengths and feel of early Belle And Sebastian records in a broader musical palette, which draws equally on musicals, 60s girl groups, 80s indie, and most of all, classic pop. "Spanning glam, soul, country, and 70s AM rock...Murdoch is at his best detailing his famously quirky characters" - Pitchfork
