Our man Murdoch is still kickin'...musically speaking. It's a nice little thought, isn't it? Three years removed from Belle and Sebastian's last record, The Life Pursuit, Stuart Murdoch is preparing to unveil a new project, dubbed God Help the Girl. Describing the musical project as "a beautifully and diligently crafted narrative that deserves to be listened to over time", Murdoch advices listeners to digest "each place, character and voice...before moving on to the next." One place to start? This lovely video for "Come Monday Night". We're not 100% sure who these folks are, but "Come Monday Night" is one precious piece of pop that ought to please long time fans of Mr. Murdoch's work.
God Help The Girl will be released June 23rd on Matador. Check out a special Subscription package available for order HERE. Not only can you pre-order the record, but also get your hands on exclusive 7" singles, 10" EPs, as well as video footage made to document the creative processes of the project. - David Pitz
