1998 effort from Glasgow's indie darlings Belle & Sebastian. The Boy With The Arab Strap was their 3rd album, widely considered an indie classic and a prime example of the B&S mellow folk-pop sound. For those unfamiliar, the sound is soft and delicate, but with catchy, smart and witty lyrics that Smiths fans will approve of. Includes tracks like "Sleep The Clock Around," "Is It Wicked Not To Care," "It Could Have Been A Brilliant Career," "A Summer Wasting," and "Chickfactor." Also check "Dirty Dream Number Two," the title track "The Boy With The Arab Strap," and the 60's psych-folk inspired "Simple Things." 12 tracks with free download card included.
