New Belle and Sebastian LP Produced in Atlanta by Ben Allen

Atlanta-based producer/engineer/musician Ben Allen, whose credits include Christina Aguilera, Bombay Bicycle Club, Animal Collective, Asher Roth and Georgia acts as far-ranging as Cee Lo Green, Reptar, The Whigs and Deerhunter, chalks up another high-profile production credit this week with the release of Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, the new LP from Glasgow, Scotland group Belle and Sebastian.

Recorded and mixed in Atlanta last March by Allen and Jason Kingsland, the album also features several local guest players and vocalists, including trumpeter Joe Gransden, saxophonist Will Scruggs, trombonist Kevin Hyde, vocalist Alfreda Gerald and Allen himself on percussion and synths.

Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance is released Tuesday, Jan. 20th on Matador Records.
