This is the rain storm that happens while the sun is still shining. Belle and Sebastian manage to make upbeat lamentations about things that are generally a much sadder affair (can anyone say "Get Me Away From Here I'm Dying"?). They might just outdo themselves on "Write About Love," with lyrics about unrequited crushing and hating work, but putting major swingin' '60s vibes throughout. For just the small price of your email address, you can get into the sunshower jam before their album, of the same name, is released on October 12.
