stream belle and sebastian's new album

'girls in peacetime want to dance'

Since the 1996 release of their debut album Tigermilk, Belle and Sebastian have become weapons in every indie music listener's arsenal. Their songs have soundtracked late-night car rides, solo existential ponderings, and '50s-themed dance sessions. But with their new album Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance, the band has taken a decidedly new sonic direction: Think more accessible,  danceable songs. Peppered with synth, cheerful bridges, and, as always, nostalgia, we can confidently declare Girls In Peacetime as our new post-disco nap/pre-party album.

Stream the whole album over at NPR here before its January 20 release.
