God Help the Girl


Stuart Murdoch has a new project. It’s not new actually, it’s been years in the making, but it’s almost ready for you to hear! You may know him as the leader of indie pop juggernauts Belle & Sebastian. Now he’s taken his well honed musical stylings and created an indie pop musical called God Help the Girl. The soundtrack, which is sure to be excellent, includes a couple of reworked B & S favorites as well as a bunch of new songs written by Murdoch. He’s gotten help from all his usual cohorts on this one, including a few ladies chosen from an internet talent competition/casting effort. But it’s the new Scottish singer Catherine Ireton of the band the Go Away Birds that sings the lion’s share of the songs as well as graces the cover of the album above (which is in true B & S fashion). Check her out on the video to the first single from the album, Come Monday Night. (video via Pitchfork.tv)

The second video is a sort of behind the scenes/introduction to the process and story of the musical.

The National


Matt Berninger and The National make some of the best ‘stuck in your head, in and out of love, train wreck’ music I’ve ever heard. And I should know, as I have basically mastered the same subject. The lyrics and music have the raw vulnerability of a still open wound, not yet clean. But if you don’t feel like getting too deep with it, their songs can just be a great melody, a hook and a moody soundtrack for a summer night’s ride.

From the Boxer LP:


The National – Green Gloves

The National – Apartment Story

The National – Start A War

From the Alligator LP:


The National – Baby We’ll Be Fine

The National – Daughters of the Soho Riots

The National – Karen

From the Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers LP:


The National – Cardinal Song

The National – 90 Mile Water Wall

The National – Lucky You

And seeing as both Bryce and Aaron Dessner are members of The National as well as pseudo-curators of the excellent Dark Was the Night charity compilation out earlier this year, here’s their contribution to that effort as both audio and visual delights (via Pitchfork.tv):

The National – So Far Around the Bend
