Classic reissued on vinyl with "It Could Have Been a Brilliant Career" obi strip!
Album download included
As Scottish indie-pop legends Belle and Sebastian finish work on their ninth studio album (recorded in Atlanta with Ben H. Allen for worldwide release via Matador Records), Matador is excited to announce that the group's vinyl catalogue — currently out of print — will be back in print for a limited time.
The "It Could Have Been A Brilliant Career" series is an opportunity to revisit the band's treasured output and unique, consistent aesthetic, as well as an opportunity for fans to complete their collections and enjoy the music via the warmth of vinyl.
Titles include all the band's full-length studio albums and compilations (save for the Storytelling soundtrack, which was never released on vinyl in the U.S.).
Tigermilk is the 1996 debut album from the Scottish pop group. The cover photograph was taken by Stuart Murdoch, and features Joanne Kenney — the same model who appeared on the cover of the Dog on Wheels EP.
Overall, the group's 1996 album proved to be a very impressive debut. The word-of-mouth success of Tigermilk thankfully led to the group's continuing efforts of translating Murdoch's songs and ideas into actual music.
The album is named after a song that didn't end up on the album — an instrumental that was later performed on Belle and Sebastian's early tours. All of the songs on the album were written by Stuart Murdoch between 1993 and 1996, and originally performed solo on the Glasgow open mic circuit. Though he performs on the album, trumpet player Mick Cooke was not yet an official member of the band.
Pitchfork Media included "The State I Am In" at No. 17 on their Top 200 Tracks of the 90s. The album track "I Don't Love Anyone" was featured in the film "The Devil Wears Prada" (2006) and in the closing credits of the fifth episode of the HBO series "Girls," titled "Hard Being Easy."
This Matador label release comes in a resealable mylar bag with "It Could Have Been A Brilliant Career" obi strip.
