The Books: Belle and Sebastian at Coachella


In a very short period of time, Scotland has become a source of some my favorite bands. While Belle and Sebastian fall into the former nationality, they unfortunately lack the latter classification. Despite their preeminent status as twee group extraordinaire, my experiences have been unremarkable, although that's probably due to my own lack of effort. I'm sorry to say that the most intriguing thing I've heard about the band to date is that members of Múm appear on the cover of one of their albums.

Thus, another reason I'm thankful for the existence of live sets is that they provide an opportunity to experience the band in a unique way, perhaps one that's more accessible than a studio cut. Again, some personality leaks through, and much like their pleasant, unassuming music, the band seems like a genuinely happy bunch, although the subject matter of their songs isn't always sunny. This show dates back to May 2nd, 2004.

Hi. Same problem with track lengths as Lamb and The Chemicals. I tried to just click thru and play in quicktime with the same result.
