You know what I love? New music projects from established musicians. If at any point you've worn skinny jeans and striped t-shirts and walked down the street with your city's alt-weekly tucked neatly under your arm, you're well aware of Belle and Sebastian, and you're probably quite the fan. Well, B&S's Stuart Murdoch is playing with a new deck of cards and the ladies are in the hizouse.
Murdoch collaborated with nine different women to create God Help the Girl, a collection of songs that he wrote, but felt were in some need of lady vocalists to make things perfect, as ladies are apt to do.
And ladies, who HASN'T had a mob of angry gentleman waving their fists in their air, or your grammy, or your parish priest sigh GOD HELP THE GIRL in exasperation as you grabbed your purse and hightailed it out of wherever it is that you were? I mean, c'mon, it's the perfect name. Am I right? RIGHT?
Either way, this song is wonderful.
