“At times like these,” declared The Mail On Sunday’s Graeme Thomson, “you realize that if Belle and Sebastian cease to exist they would create a vacuum no other band would be capable of filling.” Man, what a horrible thing to contemplate! Last night at midnight, NPR First Listen offered a premiere of the new Belle and Sebastian album, ‘Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance’. NPR’s Steve Thompson took a different tact, instead of scaring the daylights out of us, he argues ‘Girls In Peacetime’, “feels personal, lived-in and universal,” (“with 12 songs stretching out for more than an hour, ‘Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance’ allows Belle And Sebastian’s music to shimmer and breathe”).

While’s there’s more tour dates forthcoming, today we can share some photos of the deluxe vinyl box set edition of ‘Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance’ as well as the 5 badges that come with any orders that come direct from The Matador Store ;
