Product Description


The debut from this U.K. supergroup is a strange, uncertain, and undoubtedly unique record that resulted from a 10-day clatter through the nooks and crannies of the guitar-wielding Glasgow underground. Project leader Gary Lightbody, the fey-voiced front man of Irish indie-popsters Snow Patrol, manages to keep members of bands as diverse as Arab Strap, Astrid, Mogwai, Mull Historical Society, and Belle and Sebastian playing from the same hymn sheet. And on the whole, it's his own quavering, tremulous vocals that take precedence on these ponderous, sad, Sebadoh-like songs (the gorgeous "12 Hours It Takes Sometimes"), lo-fi beat-box breakdowns ("Raindrop"), and technofied Sonic Youth-style droners ("Tout le Monde"). Sure, it would have been nice to hear some of the record's other contributors making more use of their talents--Arab Strap's splendidly miserable Aidan Moffat only steps up to a microphone once, for the rolling acoustica of "Nightfall." But it's clear that this is Lightbody's project, and it's a marvel that Y'All Get Scared Now, Ya Hear sounds so polished, focused, and complete. --Louis Pattison

This album makes everything easier. Everything about life, in general. I get up to go to work, and for the last three mornings, I've listened to this album. It's the perfect length for the drive, and the fact that the songs are ordered on the album in from simplest to most musical and most instrumental make the morning, in a way, build into a good idea. I noticed that another reviewer mentioned that this is an album to listen to while you're falling for someone. I agree. I'm at the beginning of a new relationship and the first track, "Be There For Me," is everything I'd ever want to say--but haven't said, yet. The rest of the tracks on the album are all reasons to say it, though. I'm amazed that this album was recorded in ten days. It's sonically beautiful and so intense; but at the same time whimsical. I think that's a good word. The second portion of the album is a stretch from the first, but a perfect one. The processed rhythms and bass lines that subtly drive the last tracks are amazingly crafted, and the closing track, "The Day We All Died," is about the finest melody I've ever heard. That's about all I can say. I love Belle & Sebastian; I love this. You all will, too, you hear?

This debut from some of the best bands on the Glasgow (Scotland) indie scene is a curious mix of lo-fi misery, tinged with haunting ooh-aah vocals through to melodic riffs, and who knows, on tracks 5 & 7, perhaps even a single! The bands frontsman, Gary Lightbody of Irelands great Snow Patrol, puts his own stamp quickly on the proceedings with the beautiful and accessible opener "Will you be there for me". The album moves mysteriously through it's superb collection bringing out the best (though perhaps in a few cases could have allowed a little more) from bands as diverse as Arab Strap, Mogwai, Astrid and Belle and Sebastian. Nice atmospheric percussion and brass permeate throughout, led by sad almost tortured vocals but at all times fantastically expressive, you realy feel what they're trying to say. The story goes that Lightbody drifted through the extensive Glasgow indie scene asking everyone "Do you wanna be in me band?" and thankfully they all seem to have said yes. How on earth he then put together such an accomplished collection with real meaning is amazing. I believe that "Y'all get scared" is a gorgeous and unique record and once those lingering ooh-aahs drill into your subconscious, you just won't want them to stop.

Believe it or not, I'm not familiar with Snow Patrol, Arab Strap, or even Belle and Sebastian. I bought this album because I heard it playing in the record store. It's wonderful: poignant, playful, subtly profound. It starts very simply -- a voice and and acoustic guitar -- and builds slowly and steadily to a raging rocker, but gently all the way, and with a sweet "goodbye" at the close.
Fans of Yo La Tengo, Low, and the (incredible and underrated) Red House Painters should love this.

It's a shame that Belle and Sebastian are given credit as the main contributors to this album because that truly misrepresents the sound. The real brain child behind this project is Gary Lightbody of Snowpatrol. Fans of Snowpatrol can look forward to an album of sparkeling beauty. Where it will fall short is the lack of catchy pop hooks and lyrics that stay with you all day like those on SP's first two albums. The first half of the songs on the album start out at a slow pace while some percussion appears in the back half to create a little more toe tapping and head bobbing, all the while layered with GL's soothingly smooth vocals.
Any fan of Snowpatrol will appreciate this album, as well as Belle and Sebastian fans if they are not expecting Stuarts witty sarcasm to appear anywhere. Oh, by the way members of Mogwai, Astrid, V-twin, Mull Historical Society, Eva, Arab Strap and Hercules appear as well (good luck finding most of these bands).
