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.).
Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant is the fourth album from the Scottish group. The album features songs at a slower pace than their other albums, making it their most quiet and mellow album yet. The album is the closest the band has come to the chamber pop genre, as the instrumentation is mostly acoustic.
The band introduced many stylistic changes on this album, such as an organic strings section and more songs with lead vocals by other members of the band; Sarah Martin sings on "Waiting for the Moon to Rise," Isobel Campbell sings on "Family Tree," and performs duets with Stevie Jackson (who sings in an unusually low voice) on "Beyond the Sunrise" and Stuart Murdoch on "Women's Realm." Jackson also sings lead vocal on "The Wrong Girl." It is the last Belle & Sebastian album to feature bass player Stuart David, who departed the band after the album's completion.
This album has been out of print since 2010! This Matador label release comes in a resealable mylar bag with "It Could Have Been A Brilliant Career" obi strip.
