Belle and Sebastian - Lazy Line Painter Jane

Lazy Line Painter Jane is the second of three EP's Belle and Sebastian released in 1997, which is almost impressive as the two transcendent albums they released in 1996.

Lazy Line Painter Jane breaks a bit from the Belle and Sebastian sound you hear on If You're Feeling Sinister. The opening chords of the title track sound like something The Raveonettes would have concocted early in their career, and the vocals sound like Neko Case's New Pornographers performances. If anything, Lazy Line Painter Jane shows that Belle and Sebastian have the power to do just about anything they want. The title track is surprisingly delicious, and "A Century of Elvis" is deliciously bizarre in all its spoken word glory. I really like this EP and all it's reverb.

Baleeted? My sources say no.
