Belle & Sebastian Streaming Rarities Collection
Scottish alt-rock veterans Belle & Sebastian have been around for 17 years, so they have a lot of stray material floating around— and more than just 8 studio albums, apparently. Their most recent release, The Third Eye Centre, streaming now at The Guardian website, is a the 19-track rarities collection. It includes various remixes of songs like "I'm a Cuckoo," but more importantly, songs such as "Suicide Girl," "The Eighth Station of the Cross Kebab House," "Passion Fruit," and other bonus tracks, compilation tunes, and EP gems you've probably never heard are included.
TEC contains outtakes stretching from 2003's Dear Catastrophe Waitress to 2010's most recent Write About Love. It will be released on August 27th, and you can stream it right now here. Belle & Sebastian also performed in Pittsburgh for the very first time in July, and you can read about that show on WYEP's blog.
