Pitchfork writes: “The Scottish band’s first studio album in seven years considers the importance of togetherness with clear, aphoristic language and a few musical experiments… Belle and Sebastian have never been short of wise words, but over the years, as their songs have grown less character-driven, they’ve gravitated toward clear, aphoristic language that cannot be misunderstood. Perhaps that is the result of graceful aging; perhaps it’s Murdoch’s interest in Christian and Buddhist thought. Either way, this approach feels exceptionally wholehearted on A Bit of Previous.” Score: 7.5/10.
Turn Up The Volume: Very familiar, a lot of previous actually, yet I was
whistling along almost the whole way. Dream pop for a lazy summer with a lot of tasty cocktails.
