We've been very excited about news of the new Belle & Sebastian 2015 album for a while now, but the band recently made things official: It is called Girls in Peacetime Want To Dance and will be arriving January 20, 2015, via Matador Records.
With the recent "It Could Have Been A Brilliant Career" vinyl re-issues, it made sense that the band will also offer Girls in Peacetime Want To Dance as a double LP vinyl (and also available as a 4x LP vinyl boxset). Wealthy fans will love the deluxe package, poor fans will surely be jealous.
I own all the B&S albums on CD and will likely just pick up the Compact Disc for my collection.

The Belle Brigade is currently supporting Ray LaMontagne on a full US tour.
Their latest release Just Because (ATO Records) has been a huge success and has plenty of hits to egg everyone hooked this year! Very reminiscent of Family of the Year; Belle Brigade is a family band with male and female vocals dueling for a sound of perfection.
Can't wait to see them at the newly revamped Saenger Theatre, the most prestigious place to play in New Orleans. Love the guitar riffs leading up to Elliot Smith-like jams.

A Friend Too Long is the new album from Michigan indie roots band Lac La Belle (translate to "Beautiful Lake"). The album came out in early October 9th, via Double Lot Records.
The duo, songwriters Jennie Knaggs & Nick Schillace, set the album in a contemporary context framed by life in Detroit. “Detroit represents our modern time in all its beautiful, ugly, and naked realities,” says Schillace. “There is a spectrum of struggles here…and an equal opportunity to find material that is both universal and personal with a timelessness that helps connect us to a continuity of human experience.”
