Definitely won't happen unless they suddenly have some wide exposure. If their music was shoved down people's throats (played on the radio), they'd be a lock.

Generic indie stuff...and hasn't been innovating yet

I wasn't aware there was a "generic" "indie" sound.

Well considering "indie" simply refers to label status and there is everything from independent country to independent death metal, I think pinning down the common denominator might be a little tricky.

Certainly, I know of many indie acts (The Decemberists, other "twee" offerings) that were influenced by these guys...and I'm not sure how they can be considered generic when there's nobody quite like them.

If only the rest of the music world could write songs like these guys. I'm not just saying that because I'm a fan but they simply write the smartest tunes...

I chose not to vote either way for now but personally, I lean toward yes.

Probably will never make it, but a great group.

Influence: Belle And Sebastian definetly have influenced the alternative scene as it exists today. Yes 30%

"If You're Feeling Sinister" is a great album.
Posted by Chalkie on Saturday, 02.18.12 @ 16:15pm
yeah, I think i overestimated them too much there.

Saw this band at Bunbury. Both of the 'named' musicians impressed me with their multi-instument chops, Belle especially. Sebastian does most of the lead singing.
