Haunted alt blues from the backwoods.The cellist/chanteuse with bedsit balladeers Belle And Sebastian is here joined by alt blues cum urban’n’western troubadour Lanegan, an occasional member of Queens Of The Stone Age. Together, they’re a marriage made in musical haven. Campbell – who wrote all but two of the songs and produced the album – possesses a sweet, haunted voice that’s perfectly offset by Lanegan’s grizzled tones, and it’s this interplay, in 12 tales of love gone wrong (and sometimes right) in backwoods towns, that suggests a Nancy & Lee for the noughties.
Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan - Ballad Of The Broken Seas, released 06 February 06 on V2.
