Review by DjBatman
3½ stars out of 4

Borrowing their name from a cartoon called "Belle et Sebastien" (about a boy and his huge white dog... erm!) and apparently coming straight out some Scottish univerity project, B&S (don't trust the fake stories they've put spread on the 'net and on their record sleeves... the band is composed by more than two members and there's no girl called Belle who went to ask a certain guy named Sebastian for some music lessons!) deliver a fine, classy, unique, melodic and a bit retro indie pop/rock. Every song tells a different story: you will be transported into the life of "Lazy Line Painter" Jane, who "was a slave to the working weeks. But she was unemployed"; her everyday life is also narrated in a short story printed on the cd booklet.  Another remarkable moment is the last track ("A century of Elvis"), spoken over a typical B&S melody as a backing track.
