2015 might end up being the year for comebacks. Sleater-Kinney already released a great record and now Belle and Sebastian, THE indie band, is back with some of their best music in ages. Now I have never been a huge fan. I listened to them on and off. At their best they sounded very sweet, and at their worst very twee. So twee. And yet after listening to Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, I can't stop thinking I should have listened to these guys more. Much like their followers and eventual peers Stars, Broken Social Scene, The New Pornographer and so on, they have an uncanny ability to craft very good indie pop/rock. And while that often is good enough, here they broaden their sound. I wouldn't say it's experimental, more like dabbling. And the record is better for it, as it is surprisingly consistent, diverse and downright fantastic at times. It might not win waves of new fans, they are THE indie band, so popularity is not their destiny. But it will renew faith in the legion of the loyal and hopefully the wait will be shorter the next time around.
