(12.03.06) Recommends:

Belle + Sebastian, "The Life Pursuit" (Matador, 2006).

So, as I was putting together my Best of 2006 mixed CD recently I kept coming back to this CD, desperately trying to figure which of its songs I would include. I went with “Another Sunny Day.” While I was doing this I began to wonder: are we as a country properly recognizing just how great this band is? How like in 20 or 30 years this band will be regarded as one of the definitive bands of its generation? You know, they’re from Scotland and all, so maybe some of us think they’re a novelty act? I’m glad they exist; they are very necessary. Go to their myspace and listen to Another Sunny Day. You'll have one.
