Belle And Sebastian - The Blues Are Still Blue Australian Tour EP [2006/INDIE]
The Blues Are Still Blue’ is a great, classic, pop record, with their biggest and catchiest chorus, a little bit T-Rex, a little bit Bowie, maybe even a little bit Cockney Rebel. It’s the second single to be released from ‘The Life Pursuit’ album, which continues to truck out the door.
Frontman Stuart Murdoch delivers a neat pop meditation on doing your laundry, and how getting your whites and coloureds mixed up is a little like the muddle created when boys and girls get together. The only thing, it seems, you can effectively rely upon is that the blues will resolutely remain the blues.
