Belle and Sebastian – Dear Catastrophe Waitress

13 06 2010

Listened: Thursday June 10

Belle and Sebastian continue their love of 60s music and sexual confusion with Dear Catastrophe Waitress. Topics include a lighthearted look at workplace sexual harassment, cans of coke used as weapons in domestic violence, Mike Piazza’s sexual orientation (which is impressive, as I don’t imagine Scottish people tend to follow many American sports rumors), and a teenage boy wearing a dress with a melted Toblerone secreted underneath it. Don’t ask.

Stuart Murdoch’s voice just gets better and better as the years go by – he sings very prettily here. Many fans seem to think the band is weaker without Isobel Campbell, but I don’t tend to miss her.
