2. Why didn't anybody tell me that the new Belle & Sebastian kicks ass? Oh, wait, a bunch of you actually did. OK, then, why didn't I listen? I used to love them but I kinda hated the album directly following "...Arab Strap", so I haven't been following them for a few years. And another thing - since when did B&S grow some balls? "Sukie in the Graveyard" has a fucking swagger that I had no idea they possessed. Word on the street is that B&S is touring with New Pornographers and that constitutes a must-see, no questions asked.
More later, if my brain can handle it.
