Prepare to lose an hour of your morning: last night, Pitchfork.tv released this oral history of Belle & Sebastian's If You're Feeling Sinister, in which members of the band discuss the creation of the their [indie] world-conquering [second] best album along with archival footage and musical clips. I was only able to make it through the first ten minutes, which covers their superhero origin story (Stuarts Murdoch and David meet cute in a "beatboxing" program for ill/unemployed musicians, drunk Isobel Campbell in New Year's bathroom queue, etc.), before feeling overwhelmed with delight and an urgent need to share.
Let's all watch now and spend the rest of the day talking about our favorite parts in the comments?
A million thanks to Florian Duijsens (asymptote/neonresolutions) who posted this treasure in the groggy morning Facebook stream of cat pictures, baby memes, and sandwich tributes. This is already so much more exciting than the long/weird/good/awkward interview with Terry Gross.
