In today's video, we chat about part one of an excellent trio of EPs from Glasgow's very own, Belle & Sebastian

When the How to Solve Our Human Problems series was first announced last fall, Murdoch expressed his desire to shake up Belle and Sebastian’s usual recording and release strategies. But with the band successfully upgrading Everything Is Now from its most frivolous song to one of its more probing, you have wonder if they ultimately would’ve been better off whittling down the EPs’ 15 tracks into a tight 10-song album.

I was wondering if "How to solve. should actually be listed as a compilation. I believe it was thought of as an album, but released in three 12'' EPs over the period of 3 months, to celebrate the vinyl format. And after the release of the final EP, it was offered as a box containing all 3 EPs and for the first time on CD containing all 3 EPs, which by the way were not issued separately on CD. So it is my strong belief that this should lose the compilation description and be moved to the album section

Belle and Sebastian's latest is a mixed bag of sounds, spanning the genre reaches of their entire career. Over the past few years, Belle and Sebastian have truly stretched past their comfort zone, flirting with electronica beats and even abandoning their notoriously secluded ways to ride the festival circuit. Although their sound has always had both feet planted squarely in another time, recent albums – namely 2015’s Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance – have found the gang trying on the moxy of contemporary pop music, to varying degrees of success.

Belle and Sebastian were formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1994 by Stuart Murdoch and Stuart David, both of whom had enrolled at Stow College's Beatbox programme for unemployed musicians. Together, with music professor Alan Rankine (formerly of The Associates), they recorded some demos, which were picked up by the college's Music Business course that produces and releases one. single each year on the college's label, Electric Honey. In December 2010 Belle and Sebastian curated the sequel to the Bowlie Weekender in the form of Bowlie 2 presented by All Tomorrow's Parties. In 2013, Pitchfork TV released an hour-long documentary in February, directed by RJ Bentler which focused on the band's 1996 album If You're Feeling Sinister, as well as the formation and early releases of the band. How to Solve Our Human Problems (2018). Days of the Bagnold Summer (2019).

How to Solve Our Human Problems Part 3 (February 16th, 2018). Live 2015 is the third live album by Scottish indie band Belle and Sebastian. The album features their live concert performance on 22 May 2015 at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland. The album was recorded and released in conjunction with Concert Live in a 3-CD format.
