More than two decades into Belle and Sebastian’s career, one knows what to expect from Stuart Murdoch’s Glaswegian indie-pop group: well-constructed tunes that are plenty bookish and sometimes cloyingly cute. Rarely, though, as can be the case with bands who have a penchant for $5 words and literary references, does the music get bogged down by its pretensions. The band’s recent work dabbles in electronics and dance beats—a common antidote to creative inertia. In contrast, there’s nothing twee about opener Big Thief, a vehicle for Adrianne Lenker’s vivid storytelling and beautifully malleable vocals. The group has put out two strong LPs in the past 12 months; on June’s Capacity, Lenker spins emotionally resonant tales of death, romance, and abuse. ANDREW GOSPE
