Isobel Campbell and Mark LaneganSunday At Devil Dirt


Their second album together, following in the footsteps of 2006’s Ballad Of The Broken Seas. Isobel Campbell is best known for her work with Belle and Sebastian and The Gentle Waves Mark Lanegan is recognized for singing with Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age, and The Gutter Twins. Both have also released solo albums. Campbell wrote all of this album’s songs, except for two (“Salvation,” by Jim McCulloch, and “Who Built The Road,” which she cowrote with McCulloch). Lanegan does the majority of the vocal work with Campbell adding background vocals and occasionally joining him for duets. He has a rough, deep and gravelly voice that is reminiscent of Tom Waits or Johnny Cash. Her voice is light and whispery; quite the opposite of his. The music is mostly sparse country/folk with some pop and blues influences at times. Decent stuff if you don’t expect the same style of music Lanegan or Campbell is famous for.
