“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Isobel Campbell: Milk White Sheets
Isobel Campbell’s Milk White Sheets is out today and I'm simply blown away. Breathtaking and more beautiful than I imagined, this solo release from former Belle and Sebastian member is one of the most stunning albums of the year.
Revamping half a dozen English and Scottish traditional folk songs, Campbell has found her true calling as a solo artist. Recorded prior to her more country, Ballad of Broken Seas lp with Mark Lanegan, the songs on Milk White Sheets are more tender, seductive, and captivating. Accompanied by the fluttering of lush, bare-boned acoustic instrumentation, Campbell's delicate voice twinkles in the night sky and calls out for everyone to follow.
I've always found Campbell's vocals to be some of the most intimate and on this release we get the best I've ever heard. A must own!
Below is a track from this gorgeous album. Enjoy.
