Belle & Sebastian share more Late Night Tales

Belle & Sebastian share more Late Night Tales Belle & Sebastian are not exactly the obvious choice to curate an edition of the Late Night Tales mix series. However the band’s 2006 contribution to the long running series, where artists select a perfect late night soundtrack, was an unexpected success. This was in no small part due to a liberal selection of tight electronics and dance-floor oddities mixed with long forgotten remnants from pop music’s past. Now the Scottish band, who have released eight albums since their 1996 debut Tigermilk, have been asked back for another crack at the whip and judging by the track-listing below it’s going to be an equally well received selection. Coming out in March, Broadcast, The Pop Group and Toro Y Moi. And if you still think Belle & Sebastian are only about fey pop, jangling guitars and kitchen-sink dramas, we suggest you take a listen to this.
