Put This on Your iPod: Belle and Sebastian Write About Love

[Sarabeth here, back with some more jams to add to your iTunes library! Every Wednesday, I’m bringing you music suggestions – could be something new, old, hugely popular or fairly unknown –  to awesome-ify your  collection.]
To be honest, I’ve always been a little torn about Valentine’s Day. For me it’s kind of like communism; while great in theory, it almost never works in the execution. Considering last year I got two Snickers bars from my now-ex (gee, I wonder why), I don’t have high hopes for Valentine’s Day, but I’m not a complete Cupid-hater either. I’m still a sucker for love.
So for those who are like me, or for those of you who have plans with a significant other, this week’s album is for you: Belle and Sebastian Write About Love.
About the Band:
Belle and Sebastian is an indie pop band from Scotland who got their name from a French children’s book. While a lot of people think they’re a duet, it’s actually a seven member band consisting of Stuart Murdoch, Stevie Jackson, Chris Geddes, Richard Colburn, Sarah Martin, Mick Cooke, and Bobby Kildea.
Top 3 Tracks:
I Want the World to Stop
Write About Love (ft. Carey Mulligan)

Why You Should Listen to It:
This album mixes the contemporary with vintage in a beautiful and unique way. It’s so bright, happy, and romantic without being too saccharine. If you’re feeling down about being single on Valentine’s Day (and, uh, you should not!), this totally has the ability to cheer you up. And if you’ve got yourself a Valentine,  this album will definitely get you looking forward to whatever romance you’ve got planned for the night.
