I was listening to BMX Bandits the other day and just thought "Wow as far as indie pop goes this is miles better than B&S".
They just no longer interest me, Sure I still like them but they've went down by a large margin in my top bands.
Surely a new album this year will solve the overplay problem.

I have the same problem, I've actually only heard one of their albums. My flatmate has quite a lot of their 7'' records so I've heard lots of other songs, but I don't really know much about them other than that the album I have is pretty great, and they're really fun live!

When is B&S's new album out? Never even knew about it!

I don't think there is a release date yet.

Hooray new B&S album! I am really looking forward to that one.

I have always intended to buy some Belle & Sebastian but never quite got round to it. Can anyone recommend an album or two of theirs that they consider to be their best please?

Tikermilk and The Boy With The Aarab Strap, both brilliant. The Boy With The Aarab Strap is the one I started with.

If You're Feeling Sinister is the place to start.

tbh I think any album(with the exception of Storytelling which is for band devotees only) is a good starting point for them. They are all that great.

No, defintely go with Sinister, Tiger Milk, or Arab Strap first. If I'd heard anything but these first then I doubt I would've listened to more
