Album of the week

I got this for Christmas. If you like atmospheric americana and dark alt country balladry, its well worth a look. Isobel Campbell’s delicate vocals work surprisingly well with Mark Lanegan’s growl –he seems to be turning more into Tom Waits all the time. Also in the player: Johnny Cash, American V: A Hundred Highways (especially his version of God’s Gonna Cut you Down) Emmylou Harris, Heartaches & Highways: The Very Best of Bit of a country music of pain week.
