Poppy Without Being Sanitised, Danceable Without Being Identikit, Client Takes the Contemporary Trend for all Things Electro to the Next Level by Combining Pulsing, Machine-funk, Analogue Sounds with Classic Song Writing. The Album, "Client", was Recorded Entirely at Home on a Laptop Computer and Mixed on 16 Track, Completely Eliminating the Need for Expensive Studios, Producers and Session Musicians.
Started primarily as a multimedia project by Belle and Sebastian bassist Stuart David, over the course of three albums Looper has evolved into something that is only now beginning to resemble a proper band. The Snare is certainly the outfit's most focused collection yet, doing away with the bubbly, ambient doodles of 1999's Up a Tree and 2000's The Geometrid in favor of a bare-bones soundtrack feel. A slight Burt Bacharach vibe runs through songs like "Lover's Leap" and "F***ing Around," but this is distinctly dark stuff. Punctuated by sqwaking saxophones, delicately plucked strings, and twitchy lo-fi beats, it's kind of like Air without the B-movie naïveté. For those who like that kind of thing. --Aidin Vaziri

P.S. For all those reviewers screaming that this is not Belle and Sebastian, you're right. That's why it's a separate band.
Be sure to LISTEN to this before you purchase - the fact that there are so many used copies for sale at such a low price already speaks volumes for its quality.
