Matador Records presents Belle and Sebastian's What to Look for in Summer, a new live double album gathering choice selections from the band's 2019 world tour, including last summer's epic "Boaty Weekender" cruise. All live records are a time capsule to some extent, but Belle and Sebastian's What To Look For In Summer is perhaps a bit more evocative than originally planned. Neither a retrospective nor a back-door greatest hits, What To Look For In Summer is the sound of a band that's always moving forward, a picture of Belle and Sebastian in 2019 that gives equal weight to early days ("My Wandering Days Are Over," "Seeing Other People") and recent years ("Poor Boy," "We Were Beautiful"), with a track selection Murdoch says was almost random. Also included are three songs from 2000's Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant (which the band played in full at the Boaty Weekender).
