Belle & Sebastian make me think of my little sisters – all three of them – sweetly belting out tunes in our backyard. Niki, Mel and Leni have been fans for longer than I can remember, though 2006′s The Life Pursuit was my first real introduction.
God Help the Girl is a new three-woman group courtesy of their frontman, Stuart Murdoch. The first two songs – a cover of Belle & Sebastian’s own Funny Little Frog and an original number titled Come Monday Night – are sweet and brimming with lovely voices and remind me of old photographs of my mom.
The album comes out this Monday, June 22.
