new belle and sebastian album in 2010!?

many people (including myself) have been wondering if stuart murdoch’s god help the girl project signaled the beginning of the end of belle and sebastian.  they have not been on tour or released a studio album since 2006, and it seemed as if there were no plans of either happening again.  until now.

i was reading the god help the girl newsletter when this caught my attention:

THE FILM

The script for the film is now also in a state of (near) completion (film scripts are never really ever finished) and things are moving slowly towards going into production. Most likely there will be a Belle and Sebastian record first during 2010, so filming should get properly underway in 2011.

most likely there will be a belle and sebastian record first during 2010.  i then checked the website for news, and was greeted with this picture:

god help the girl

according to stuart murdoch, it’s not belle and sebastian. however, it is stuart murdoch singing with three random girls. backed by the other members of belle and sebastian. and that’s good enough for me.

sososo excited.

the black cab sessions

how have i never heard of these before??

typing “jens lekman” in the the vimeo search box at 2:45 am was a definite mistake.  i was planning on going to sleep.  instead i clicked on the search result labeled “the black cab sessions.”

i’ve been watching black cab sessions ever since.  oops.

i’m not going to explain the concept.  it’s really not necessary.  here are a few that i like…
