Push Barman to Open Old Wounds

Genre: Indie Rock; Producer (group): Matador

Releasing a number of stand-alone singles/EPs in between formal CDs, the lovable Glaswegians, Belle and Sebastien, have taken an antiquated approach to the industry that’s as whimsical as the band’s dreamy librarian pop on Push Barman to Open Old Wounds. The swinging-’60s harmonies on ”Legal Man” and wry lyricism of ”This Is Just a Modern Rock Song” (previously unavailable in the U.S.) anchor the merry and melancholic on this irresistible 25-song collection of non-LP tracks.
