Quite honestly, I could listen to Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan sing an album consisting entirely of press releases for the next big thing from NYC, clinical trials of the newest treatments for athlete’s foot, or the police blotter from the newspaper of one traffic light, a few hundred people, Ohio. Lanegan’s voice is worn, weathered, and resilient, while Campbell is light, sprite-like, and uplifting. Together, they can sing just about anything, and the fact that they choose to sing delicate, front porch folk songs like “Trouble,” makes their latest album, Sunday At The Devil Dirt, all the better.
