Track of the Week: I Want the World to Stop by Belle and Sebastian

This week’s track is I Want the World to Stop by Belle and Sebastian off of Belle and Sebastian Write About Love. I’ve had this song in my library for a while and have kept putting off sending it out, mostly because it feel out of my Recently Added list. I’ve never been a huge Belle and Sebastian fan and Write About Love their first album I own. When I first heard of them in the early 2000s, folks might have described them as folk music but as I listen to them now after the indie revolution (is that a thing?) I would probably call them indie pop. The sound of this specific track harks back to The 5th Dimension’s Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In but at a slower BPM with a somewhat mid-late-60s sound.
