Album: Belle & Sebastian, Write About Love (Rough Trade)
Sunday 10 October 2010
B&S's eighth studio album comes after a four-and-a-half year wait, but the hiatus hasn't altered them one jot.
Its 11 tracks remain largely within the Glaswegian cutie icons' already familiar style: perfectly pleasant country-folk and twee, 1960s-derived indie-pop that will appeal hugely to the faithful.
The only thing weirder than the fact that B&S recorded this in LA's legendary Sound Factory studio is the fact that "Bloody" Norah Jones features. Expect the Katie Melua/Camera Obscura hook-up forthwith.
