Man, this Saturday Circlejerk thing has made me realize one thing...I REALLY NEED TO ACTUALLY LISTEN TO BELLE & SEBASTIAN’S DISCOGRAPHY.

I enjoyed it so much that I had to listen to it a second time in the same morning. Really relaxing and warm. Absolutely loved it!

It's one of those records that you know for a FACT was crafted with an ocean of passion, it's a rare moment for me to be more invested in what the artist has to share with the listener, rather than the already gorgeous and catchy melodies bundling the album.

I believe there is a Canadian Boi who can put it into words better than I have... But I give a high recommendation to anyone in the mood for a sweet listen with tangible lyrical content.

This one was so COZY. Like a story book being read to a small child. I don’t know, there’s just something so magical about an album like this. How an album can seem so small, yet so important. It’s not the most memorable, but it certainly leaves a nice feeling
Am I supposed to be sad or happy? I was both so 9/10
