God Help the Girl

Essentially Belle & Sebastian leader Stuart Murdoch, the others of B&S, and a phalanx of female muse-singers (but mainly obscure Irish vocalist Catherine Ireton), God Help the lady is among the odder “side projects” (if it could even be referred to as such). Created in 2008 to produce music for Murdoch’s likewise entitled film-in-progress, God Help the lady takes the essential obtuse storytelling and twee-plus B&S audio and tweaks it in to the previous, injecting components of ’60s female groups, Still left Banke-esque Baroque pop, lilting chanson, and only a contact of Randy Newman wryness. The centerpiece of Murdoch’s creation is certainly a curiosity-chaser called Eve. As the preliminary intention was for the rotating ensemble of Eves recruited by personal advertisement to tone of voice her, Ireton, a dark and sultry jazz crooner, holds a lot of the workload on this year’s 2009 self-titled debut, although others, including Smoosh’s Asya, drop in when enough time beckons.
