Belle & Sebastian have curated another Late Night Tales compilation, which are basically mixtapes created by an artist or group featuring music they’re digging, as well as a cover by the band making the compilation. For this one, Belle & Sebastian have included songs by Toro y Moi and the Loving Spoonful, as well as their own cover of British indie-pop band The Primitives‘ song “Crash”.
To accompany the song, Stephen Tofrey created an adorable video featuring the band as adorable blockheads, tooling around town on a hot air balloon. It’s not a concept that would work for many bands or many songs, but it fits the wonderful twee-ness that is Belle & Sebastian.
By the way, Pitchfork reported that this song will be available as a 7″ for Record Store Day, but I don’t see it on the list of releases. Either way, it’s probably worth a call to your local record store to see if they’ll be getting it in stock.
