Belle and Sebastian - If You're Feeling Sinister (V0)

The recipe for a perfect autumn day: equal parts Belle and Sebastian and Carissa's Wierd. Both gentle and falling, like leaves onto a sidewalk, into and out of your consciousness just often enough to feel a leaf brush your skin or to a hear a lyric like, "Who's seeing you at all?" The truth is that no one is, and Belle and Sebastian have the unique ability to be freed by this fact, to escape to the egocentric fragility and expansiveness of a child's wit and imagination. Every moment is just as surreptitious as it is intimate, and even the synthesized moments of If You're Feeling Sinister seem completely organic.



  1. My favorite part of this post is the excessive attention to detail in each and every sentence, the way the words flow so carelessly from your obviously genius mind onto (what was once) a blank canvas free for interpretation of what would one day cover it's glorious hull, none of which were quite as much a spectacle or even a bit as filling and full as what we have right here.

    I'm not sure if you could tell
    but that was sarcasm
    a lot of it

  2. not fair now my comment doesn't make sense anymore
