Belle And Sebastian have previous experience when it comes to releasing EP triple-threats. They did so in 1997 - the run of Dog On Wheels, Lazy Line Painter Jane and 3.. 6.. 9 Seconds Of Light - and two decades on they’ve given us the three-part How To Solve Our Human Problems series. However, if you struggle to keep up with release schedules then the band have also handily compiled the three EPs as both a vinyl box set and a CD. Musically it’s a real mixed bag - for every bit of classic jangly B & S fare like ‘Sweet Dew Lee’ we get something more out-three. The twee-pop/breakbeat (?!) hybrid of ‘We Were Beautiful’, for example. The overall effect recalls the more experimental offerings of late-90s St Etienne, and the beauty is that Belle And Sebastian’s inherent charm and songwriting chops win out no matter what styles they dabble in.
- Vinyl box set contains three EPs, How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 1), How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 2), and How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 3)
