3 Songs: On Repeat – Belle And Sebastian Edition

As a way to shake thing up, over the course of the last few months, Scottish indie-pop mainstays Belle And Sebastian have released their new album as a series of 3 new EPs titled, How To Solve Our Human Problems, via Matador Records.  The vinyl versions include special liner notes that feature essays and such from the band and tomorrow the trilogy of EPs will be collected on CD as well as a limited edition box set that includes a poster featuring 80 photographs of fans from around the world.   
For this special 3 Songs: On Repeat feature, I present my favorite tracks from the trilogy.  Enjoy!

We Were Beautiful” – (Taken from the first EP of the trilogy, a skittering electronic beat combines with pedal steel and an ascending chorus that builds upon the synth-driven dance-pop  of their last album, 2015’s Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance.)
The Same Star” – (Taken from the second installment comes this upbeat pop song led by Sarah Martin with its bright bursts of Motown-inspired horns and a surprisingly blistering guitar solo.) 
I’ll Be Your Pilot” – (Also from the second in the series is this sweet and breezy, retro-minded ballad highlighted by oboe and infectious background vocals.)
