Twee # 1 Belle & Sebastian

As one long-running series on here has just come to an end I might as well get another one going to keep my eye in. This one should be fairly low maintenance. From one of the more interesting books I've read recently, which supplies a playlist at the back of the book of all things Twee which should provide a diverting enough journey into winter. Here's what I initially said about the book a couple of months back.

'A historical and cultural investigation into a particular sensibility taking in all the great writers, artists and musicians who have championed a gentler way of doing things. Taking in Walt Disney, Anne Frank, J.D.Salinger, Truman Capote, Jean Seberg, Jonathan Richman, Edwyn Collins, Morrissey, Wes Anderson and so on. Every sensitive icon you could possibly want. Wonderfully written and encyclopedic in its scope, it's sure to act as the source for a lot of the music I'll post here over the coming months.'

True enough! Here's the first. Not unnaturally, Belle & Sebastian, who could virtually act as curators of this stuff.
