Classic Reissued on Vinyl With "It Could Have Been a Brilliant Career" Obi Strip!

Tigermilk is the 1996 debut album from Scottish pop group Belle & Sebastian. The cover photograph was taken by Stuart Murdoch, and features Joanne Kenney - the same model who appeared on the cover of the Dog on Wheels EP.

Overall, the acclaimed Scottish indie pop/folk group's 1996 album proved to be a very impressive debut. The word-of-mouth success of Tigermilk thankfully led to the group's continuing efforts of translating Murdoch's songs and ideas into actual music.

The album is named after a song that didn't end up on the album – an instrumental that was later performed on Belle & Sebastian's early tours. All of the songs on the album were written by Stuart Murdoch between 1993 and 1996, and originally performed solo on the Glasgow open mic circuit. Though he performs on the album, trumpet player Mick Cooke was not yet an official member of the band.

Pitchfork Media included "The State I Am In" at number 17 on their Top 200 Tracks of the 90s. The album track "I Don't Love Anyone" was featured in the film The Devil Wears Prada (2006) and in the closing credits of the fifth episode of the HBO series Girls, "Hard Being Easy."
