Belle And Sebastian - Tigermilk

Belle And Sebastian – Tigermilk

JEEPSTER RECORDINGS

  • £20.99


Belle And Sebastian's debut album, originally released in 1996, reissued on vinyl.

"a charming take on standard rock instrumentation and big band flourishes. Album highlights "Expectations" and "My Wandering Days Are Over" benefit from the panoramic vistas bestowed upon them by viola and piano, while the 6-minute crescendo of "I Could Be Dreaming" proves Murdoch was already capable of writing epics from an early age. Even "Electronic Renaissance", a Hacienda banger in disguise, manages to make an impact with its washes of shoegazing synths and echoed vocal effects.

Underscored by wordplay that makes even the strangest of phrases become memorable and emotionally impactful, Tigermilk became a strange proposition. At once showing promise, it was also a career highlight, foreshadowing the successful structure of If You're Feeling Sinister and The Boy with the Arab Strap." Sputnikmusic.com
