    Blog: Throwback Thursday: Belle and Sebastian

    Every week in the Throwback Thursdays series, you’ll be exposed to musical gems from past years or even decades that you may have missed when they first came around and are worth taking notice of.

    Belle and Sebastian is an indie pop act out of Glasgow, Scotland, which borrows its name from the French children’s novel Belle et Sébastien. Lead singer Stuart Murdoch delivers delightfully wistful songs that have been featured in movies, such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Juno, as well as in television shows, such as How I Met Your Mother and Gilmore Girls. Members of the group have gone on to perform in and find acts such as God Help the Girl, Camera Obscura and The Gentle Waves. Belle and Sebastian is one of my favorite groups, and always manages to sneak onto a mixtape I make for a friend — no matter the mood of the tape, Belle and Sebastian has covered it all.
