The Life Pursuit
Released: Feb 2006
Label: Matador Records
Button up the cardie and tape up the hornrims: B&S's 2006 release is freaking fantastic. The witty, literate songcraft is still here, but the omnivorous genre-jumping has gotten even sharper, with group leader Stuart Murdoch introducing more of a lean '70s rock bite into the band's jangly '60s sound. "Song for the Sunshine" mixes Sly Stone in with Hall, Oates, Seals and Croft. Brilliant.
