Belle and Sebastian are an indie pop band formed in Glasgow, Scotland in January 1996. They have been called the greatest Scottish band ever,and are one of the most celebrated groups of the 1990s.Belle & Sebastian are often compared to influential indie bands such as The Smiths, as well as classic rock acts such as Love, Bob Dylan and Nick Drake. The name Belle & Sebastian is inspired by Belle et Sébastien, a children's book by French writer Cécile Aubry. Lauded by critics, Belle & Sebastian's "wistful pop" has nevertheless enjoyed only limited commercial success.

After releasing a number of albums and EPs on Jeepster Records, they are now signed to Rough Trade Records in the United Kingdom and Matador Records in the United States.

Rolling Stone Review:
The first thing you need to know about the latest Belle and Sebastian album is that it's produced by Trevor Horn, the man behind Frankie Goes to Hollywood. The second is that it's funny. This Scottish seven-piece has always had a dark sense of humor, but here it's in the music as well, and it's gone barmy: When Stuart Murdoch sings, in "I'm a Cuckoo," about listening to "Thin Lizzy-o," dual electric guitars play a melody in harmony as if copping a riff from "The Boys Are Back in Town."
Surprisingly, Horn's presence isn't at all overbearing. The sound hasn't significantly slickened, but the performances are tighter, confident, even bouncy, bringing the band much closer to the vintage pop and soul records it adores. Belle and Sebastian are still twee, but with a twist and shout.

Rolling Stone Review:
Belle and Sebastian are a seven-member ensemble from Glasgow, Scotland, that create elaborate yarns backed by equally elaborate arrangements. If You're Feeling Sinister, their lush, strings-and-piano-driven second album, stands in stark contrast to much contemporary pop for a couple of reasons: Not only is it unabashedly gentle, but the album is completely narrative driven. All the songs have the smooth flow of good storytelling; even the liner notes on band members are literary. One album-sleeve credit reads: "Isobel's thinking of giving up her college. But Isobel, who's going to support us when our dreams crash against the rocks?" We're never told what Isobel does in the group. But what can you expect from a band whose publicity photo pictures an unidentified woman who is not a band member, wearing a surgical mask?

The septet never sounds impressed with its own smarts, but Belle and Sebastian (the name comes from a 1970s French TV show about a boy and his dog) do occasionally get mired in their own sensitivity. On "The Boy Done Wrong Again," singer Stuart Murdoch is at his most plaintive and gets dangerously close to being whiny; it's hard to resist lines such as "All I wanted was to sing the saddest songs/If somebody sings along, I will be happy now," but it's even harder to believe that anything could make Murdoch truly happy at that point. Still, it's tough to find fault with a band that opts for shy resolution over self-promotion and, in so doing, reaches peaks of effortless pastoral grandeur.
