God Help the Girl is a 2009 album by Stuart Murdoch of the band Belle and Sebastian with female vocalists such as Catherine Ireton. God Help the Girl is also the name of the band and the accompanying film released in 2014. The songs are about a Scottish girl who is hospitalized after a nervous breakdown. Two songs Funny Little Frog and Act of the Apostle were taken from the repertory of Belle and Sebastian. God Help The Girl is a musical feature film, which will be made in 2012.

God Help the Girl is a musical project authored by Stuart Murdoch, leader of the Scottish indie pop group Belle & Sebastian, featuring a group of Help the Girl is a musical project authored by Stuart Murdoch, the leader of the Scottish indie pop group Belle and Sebastian, featuring, besides Belle & Sebastian as the accompanying band, a group of female vocalists, including Catherine Ireton. The records released as part of the project include so far: the singles Come Monday Night, Funny Little Frog 2009 and Baby, You're Blind 2010, the main album of the project, also entitled God Help the Girl, and the EP Stills both published in 2009. In 2011, Stuart Murdoch plans to start shooting a musical film, which will read more. God Help the Girl should probably just be viewed as a flawed work or a semi-successful adventure by a solo artist who needs his band to be truly great. Or maybe he just should have sung all the songs himself and everything would have been fine. However you view it, unless you are a Belle & Sebastian fanatic, you could probably give God Help the Girl a pass. You won't be missing much. God Help the Girl opens with a delicate new version of The Life Pursuit centerpiece Act of the Apostle II. Switched from senior year to senior ward, and re-titled simply Act of the Apostle, the song also drops its last verse- making the whole thing more prologue-like- and gains a bit of Andrews Sisters swing. The last two songs are among the album's most inspired. I'll Have to Dance With Cassie suggests Eve has returned to the church of rock'n'roll now that she knows her dream boy doesn't exist, she's shimmying with a girl friend like they're a pair of boxing kangaroos. On closing number A Down and Dusky Blonde, having fried her head- another double entendre . In God Help The Girl he does a few things well. The dance and musical sequences, though possibly jarring to some, are blended into the film reasonably well. But the rest of it is pretty shallow. It's as if he had the idea of jumping into the ocean but got to the edge and just paddled, not really able or wanting to get wet. For example, James is potentially an interesting character but Stuart doesn't develop him beyond the paper thin. At one point in the film, Anton Pierre Boulanger describes Eve's music as, and I'm paraphrasing, baby stories for young girls. I think Anton. God Help the Girl, old-fashioned and without artifice though it may be, is supremely welcoming. Its charm-and those tunes-are likely to make it an album you find yourself returning to, again and again, for the simple joy of listening to it. Read full review. God Help the Girl is a spirited expansion of some of Murdoch's best ideas, but until the film finishes shooting-set to start next year-we'll probably just have wild-ass guesses like mine as to the real story
