// BELLE & SEBASTIAN ‘IF YOU’RE FEELING SINISTER’ LP
"Now a classic! Belle & Sebastian offer up a largely acoustic folk-pop sound with deep roots in the '60s. Their guitar-and-piano arrangements are often filled out by luxurious trumpets and strings, but the clever, sardonic lyrics keep things from ever getting too mushy. The bright, irresistible pop melodies stand in sharp contrast to decidedly downbeat lyrics that recall Morrissey at his sharpest. Timeless, gorgeous, and just cool enough to avoid a mainstream breakthrough."
