Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan – Deus Ibi Est

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan
Deus Ibi Est
from Ballad of the Broken Seas
Released 2006

Day on day I march the beat to someone else’s drum

A beautiful song from the great After 2006’s great Ballad of the Broken Seas, the first collaboration by the new Lee and Nancy!

Glad to see that Isobel paid attention during her Latin classes back in secondary school!

Two videos for this track.

First, a video piece set to the original track. An excellent video. Simple but effective. Posted by goouttothemeadow. Not sure if it was he who made it though.

Second, a live performance from the dynamic duo.

Against my will to these sad shores
An unknown force has drawn me
Bound unto a future shaped by ancestors before me
Day on day I march the beat to someone else’s drum
I have searched far foreign lands there’s nowhere left to run

Impending storm rise up rise up
Oh demons I shall shame you!
Look down the barrel of my gun and one by one I’ll name you
Day on day my brothers leave go marching off to war
Yet we never understand for what we’re fighting for

Ubi caritas et amor
(Where there is tender care and love)
Ubi caritas
(Where there is tender care)
Deus ibi est
(God is present)

Worldly desires and worldly gains
Designed for worldly men
I’m a master of the heart with ears and hands to lend
Soldiers come and soldiers go some changed by love for thee
A circle in the chain of life all fighting to be free

Ubi caritas et amor
Ubi caritas
Deus ibi est

So come my lord and we shall dance
To God’s own private drum
Sweet Jesus and the holy vine
The afterlife to come
Day on day I march the the beat to someone else’s drum
I have searched far foreign lands there’s nowhere left to run

Ubi caritas et amor
Ubi caritas
Deus ibi est

Genre Indie pop
Alternative rock
Length 47:19

After 2006’s great Ballad of the Broken Seas, comes this wonderful second collaboration from the new Lee and Nancy!

This carries on the high quality of the debut and is another wonderful work!

Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart was released as an EP with extra tracks.

Pitchfork review;

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan: Sunday at Devil Dirt
Rating: 6.3

It was another surprising detour in a career composed almost exclusively of detours: Isobel Campbell, former Belle & Sebastian member and sometime solo act, teamed with Mark Lanegan, taciturn former Screaming Trees singer and serial collaborator. With the release of their Ballad of the Broken Seas, the “Beauty and the Beast” lines came fast and furious. So did the Nancy and Lee comparisons, which were probably welcome. The pairing of Lanegan and Campbell may have come as a shock to fans of the latter (and maybe even the former) but the music itself was less than revelatory. Indeed, the Lee Hazelwood/Nancy Sinatra template is iconic for a reason, and to borrow it means to risk imitating them. It also means treading closely to Leonard Cohen, Scott Walker, or any other somber, late-1960s orchestral pop act.

Still, the results were beautiful and brooding, with Campbell’s songwriting significantly enhanced by this very specific setting. Sequels, however, are inherently built on familiarity and a sequel to the solid yet by-the-books Ballad of the Broken Seas could be as problematic as the Hollywood models are. Yet while Sunday at Devil Dirt may be more of the same (with glimpses of Tom Waits’ junkyard blues tossed in to good effect), Campbell and Lanegan were never out to do anything different. Once again, melancholy, minor-key folk melodies, and bits of spy-theme and spaghetti-western cool color the album, typically enhanced by only the classiest of accompaniment– upright bass, strings, brushed drums, twangy electric guitars, and other chamber-pop mainstays. And once again, Campbell works better as a supporting player on her own record than as a leader, cooing and chiming away in the background. Sure, she provides most of the songwriting, but it’s Lanegan who provides the gravitas.

Fortunately, Campbell seems to realize her place here as writer and arranger first and foremost, generally ceding the spotlight to Lanegan on the likes of the bleak (of course) “The Raven” and “Back Burner”, the somewhat lighter country-blues of “Salvation” and “Sally Don’t You Cry”, and the spare folk of “Something to Believe”. Compared to Lanegan, Campbell sounds thin singing lead on “Shot Gun Blues” or as duet partner on “Who Built the Road” and “The Flame That Burns”. Her vocals are almost like post-production special effects.

In a lot of ways that’s what makes the disc such a good, breezy listen. Campbell’s turn on “Come On Over (Turn Me On)” aims for sultry yet can’t get beyond sweet and innocent; in Lanegan, however, she’s found a substitute singer that’s a perfect match for the strength of her compositions, a rumbling, grumbling vessel through which to channel her songs, themselves channeling the vibe of a lost but not forgotten time of smoky bars, scratchy jukeboxes, convertibles, open roads, broken hearts, cheap motels, and cheaper thrills. It’s a bit like a dust-specked and flickering faux Super-8 road trip reel, with Campbell manning the camera and sitting in the director’s chair and Lanegan glowering away in the uncomfortable glare of the sun.

– Joshua Klein, May 9, 2008

https://i1.wp.com/thelineofbestfit.com/wp-content/pictures/2008/02/lanegancampbell.jpg

Some people have all the luck. You know the ones I mean; the sort of folk who stride through life safe in the knowledge that Lady Fortune will prescribe yet another dose of opportunity upon which their dreams can be realised. It’s said that such fortuity favours the brave, yet when things like this and especially this happen it becomes increasingly difficult to believe that luck is anything other than a prerequisite of the privileged.

It would be easy then to argue that mouse-shy Isobel Campbell is one of the luck-struck few. Having been part of cultish twee-mongers Belle & Sebastian during, what was arguably, their most prodigious years, the Glaswegian-born songstress’ career nosedived on the release of her poorly received debut solo album (discounting two distinctly ‘meh’ Gentle Waves LPs) Amorino, leaving Campbell’s decision to flee Stuart Murdoch’s flock of bedtime reading jingle-janglers looking like a disastrous spot of self-aggrandised folly.

But then, as luck would have it, Campbell hit gold. By coaxing gravel-pit grizzly Mark Lanegan into collaborating on smoke-stained long-player Ballad Of The Broken Seas (review), the reticent cooer was transformed from corduroy-clad pin-up girl to ravishing, blues-smudged chanteuse. A devilish, fiery-eyed record exuding arresting tales of love, lust and loss, it was a remarkable juxtaposition of sandpaper and silk or, as many a hack would eagerly deduce, beauty and beast. Musically, Ballad… may not have been an entirely satisfying affair, but the stark contrast of Campbell’s sheenful purr brushed against Lanegan’s baritonal growl produced one of 2006’s most intriguing records.

Fast-forward two years and the unlikely Mercury Prize-nominated duo are once again caught in a smouldering embrace – but this time the element of surprise has disappointingly vanished. Album number two, Sunday At Devil Dirt, is comparable to the rekindling of an old flame; filled with memories of good times gone yet lacking the spark of fresh, unexplored pastures. Again penned almost entirely by Campbell before tweaked to fit Lanegan’s whisky-guzzled grumbling, there’s a distinct element of ‘seen it, done it, milking it’ to every rootsy, airsome shanty and, although executed with exemplary grace, it seems there’s not quite enough fuel left to stoke the fires of desire once more.

That’s not to say Sunday At Devil Dirt is an unmitigated catastrophe. Any record that contains the lachrymose presence of Lanegan and the smoky wafts of bromidic tone he exhales cannot fail to intrigue. But from the first brittle notes of ‘Seafaring Song’ it’s apparent that the enveloping captivation of Ballad… has disappeared, replaced with a stale, minor-key haze of strum and string while Campbell lingers sultrily in the background of Lanegan’s dilapidated crow. And it’s in this opening number’s formation where …Devil Dirt’s main problem derives.

For much of the proceeding 40-odd minutes Campbell appears so innately aware of her brutish accomplice’s ability to draw crowds she’s consigned herself to bit-part wing-woman. Tracks such as the sluggish ‘Salvation’ and gloom-laden ‘Something To Believe’ lack the sleight of touch her wistful mew provides, leaving what could be two heart-rousing duets to kick their heels in the dust-bitten rabble of Lanegan’s less than invigorated, bass-heavy growl. For sure, there are times when the ex-Screaming Trees frontman is an esteemed vocal exhilarant – adding an unequivocal snarl to ‘Back Burner’’s demanding voodoo-blues or the equally ravaged ‘The Raven’ – but, with Campbell’s main input confined to breezy harmonies, the likes of ‘Trouble’ and ‘Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart’ feel lonesome and bare-boned amidst a spate of perfunctorily arranged country laments.

When Campbell finally gets to have her say the results are heavenly: ‘Shot Gun Blues’ is a simmering bar-room rankle of steel guitar and vixen-like pleading while the tombstone bound ‘Who Built The Road’ writhes over a windswept tundra of melancholic chimes and eerie string arrangement. Yet such peaks too often succumb to Lanegan’s limelight-hogging, culminating in the beard-stroking boredom of closer ’Sally don’t You Cry’, a track that exits on such a whimper of humdrum couplets it could well have been scribed by a Johnny Cash-aping ten year old.

With Campbell’s second solo LP, 2006’s Milkwhite Sheets, barely garnering a crumb of acclaim in the pages of the unforgiving music press, it’s of no surprise to find her pulling out the stops with a double dose of prize-catch Lanegan. Yet, judging by the standards set on this less than sparkling offering, her lucky charm may be her eventual undoing.

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan – Ballad of the Broken Seas ( 2006)

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan – Ballad of the Broken Seas
Released 2006
Recorded 2005
Genre Indie pop
Alternative rock
Length 42:45
Label V2 Records
Producer Isobel Campbell, Dave Paterson

The first collaboration between bonnie Scots lass and ex Belle & Sebastian member Isobel Campbell and the great Mark Lanegan!

Campbell penned most of the tracks and self-produced the album. There are a few Lanegan tracks too and some nice cover, including a great track by Mr. Hank Willliams!

This fine LP made the shortlist for the 2006 Mercury Music Prize. However, the Mercury nomination provoked some criticism, as collaborator Mark Lanegan is American and the award is for British and Irish artists only. However Campbell wrote most of the tracks and self-produced the album. Campbell had written the music and some of the lyrics, before sending it to Lanegan.

The songs are excellent and there’s a nice dichotomy between Campbell’s sweetness and Lanegan’s growl especially in the context of the often dark lyrics!

A great combination! A wonderful work!

The new Lee and Nancy?? Yap!

They would work again on the great Sunday At The Devil Dirt (2008)

It’s tempting to say something facile like “beauty meets the beast” in writing about this collaboration between former Belle & Sebastian member Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan, best known for his work with Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age. After all, Campbell’s voice is all sweet angelic whisper while Lanegan’s whisky-and-nicotine rasp sounds like the product of ten thousand nights in a barroom, but somehow these sweet and sour elements come together with striking and impressive results on Ballad of the Broken Seas.

It helps that musically these two are not far away from the same page; the ghostly blues-based structures of Lanegan’s Whiskey for the Holy Ghost and The Winding Sheet may be starker than Campbell’s stuff with Belle & Sebastian or her solo set Amorino, but they both appear to revel in the sort of glorious sadness that draws beauty from melancholy, and they find a dark and lovely common ground on this set of songs.

Campbell produced the album and wrote the bulk of the material (though Lanegan wrote one song, the moody and satisfying “Revolver”), and while it’s no great surprise that she comes up with superb material for herself, she also knows what to make of Lanegan’s expressive rasp (“The Circus Is Leaving Town” is as good a performance as he’s ever recorded), and their numbers together (especially “The False Husband” and the cover of Hank Williams’ “Ramblin’ Man”) recall what one hoped Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue’s duets on Murder Ballads would sound like. Ballad of the Broken Seas is a superbly crafted bit of late-night introspection that brings out the best in both Lanegan and Campbell and adds new and unexpected facets to their impressive repertoires.

Fucking Pitchfork wrote:

Isobel Campbell was the second-best singer– and best cellist– in Belle and Sebastian. Mark Lanegan fronted grunge almost-weres Screaming Trees, one of those odd bands that everyone knows but few listen to, and he did a stint in Queens of the Stone Age. Given Belle and Sebastian’s penchant for lacy chamber pop and the Screaming Trees/QOTSA bias toward angrily trippy stoner jams, it only makes sense that Campbell’s and Lanegan’s collaboration produced a bunch of mildly acerbic sea shanties and maudlin dust-bowl folk ballads.

“Deus Ibi Est” establishes Ballad of the Broken Seas’s mise en scene– a broad, desolate expanse of metronomic kickdrum and lilting acoustic guitar. Lanegan slips into a Grinchy beatnik drawl, doing Tom Waits doing Leonard Cohen, sharpishly channeling the voice of an itinerant soldier, while Campbell’s airy Latin hook (the dead language kind, not the Ricky Martin kind) sounds as if all the Whos down in Whoville wandered into a seedy wharf bar.

If you really wanna cut the roast beast, let’s say it plain: While Campbell’s contributions to the album are far from negligible, the thing reeks of Lanegan, aligning itself with the hard-bitten American roots music of his solo albums. Lanegan’s boozy, melancholic growl and down-and-out imagery on “The Circus Is Leaving Town” would fit comfortably on a Crooked Fingers record, that pacesetter for all things indie-gone-Americana. He turns in an appropriately smoldering cover of Hank Williams’s “Ramblin’ Man”, Campbell’s whispered taunts and supplications skewing its narrative POV. Even openly sentimental songs like the hushed, piano-driven title track acquire a thin layer of grit: “We fucked up the sun to kingdom come/ You were under my blood and my skin.” Campbell’s presence seems unavoidably minimized on the duets, as her gusty chirp flutters through the holes in Lanegan’s decaying clapboard shack of a voice, yet it’s also indispensable, like the color commentary on a televised golf match.

Some of the record’s most penetrating moments arrive when either Lanegan or Campbell take center stage alone. Lanegan’s “(Do You Wanna) Come Walk With Me?”, despite moments of implied, discomforting pederasty (“Little girl, have I told you how you light up my life?/ Come and lay down beside me, come and thrill me tonight”), features the inarguably vivid and arresting lyrical turn, “There’s a crimson bird flying when I go down on you.” Campbell takes the lead on “Black Mountain” and “Saturday’s Gone”, her voice cascading over quivering strings and swirling arpeggios on the former, and riding in on clip-clopping hooves on the latter. The thirty-odd years of musical experience Campbell and Lanegan collectively possess are worn like sun-creased skin on Ballad of the Broken Seas, which manages to be consistently engaging and sufficiently memorable without making too much fuss about it.

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan – Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart EP (2008)

https://i0.wp.com/thelineofbestfit.com/wp-content/pictures/2008/03/campbelllanegan.jpg

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan – Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart EP (2008)

After 2006’s great Ballad of the Broken Seas, 2008 sees more wonderful collaboration from the new Lee and Nancy!

And this is excellent music from this incongruous yet wonderful musical pairing!

https://i1.wp.com/thelineofbestfit.com/wp-content/pictures/2008/02/lanegancampbell.jpg

This is from the recording sessions in Glasgow and the Catskills for the Sunday At The Devil Dirt (2008) released a few months back, the second fruitful collaboration between the dynamic duo after the sublime Ballad of the Broken Seas from 2006!

https://i2.wp.com/991.com/newGallery/Isobel-Campbell-Sunday-At-Devil-D-433388.jpg

The songs on the EP are tracks that Isobel felt worked best as a separate piece of work, and the discerning listener may observe a different flavour to much of the album, though as ever Campbell and Lanegan compliment each other beautifully.

Highlights include the beautiful ‘Asleep on a Sixpence’ and ‘Rambling Rose, Clinging Vine’ which already sound like instant standards.

Mark Lanegan & Isobel Campbell ” Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart “

From the Culture Show on BBC – Summer 2008.

1. Keep Me In Mind Sweetheart 2:30
2. Fight Fire With Fire 4:33

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan announce new album details

We’ll file this in the the “Good News” drawer! (there’s been nothing but cobwebs in that one, lately!)

We’ve loved Lanegan (well, his music anyway!) ever since he was part of a screaming forest, and on through his subsequent solo albums and various collaborations! He is truly an excellent songwriter, and indeed performer. Most recently, his 2007 collaboration album with Soulsavers was one of out 2007 favourites.

We also did quite like the early Belle & Sebastian albums until the accumulated feyness later began to cause my already weak mind to disintegrate! Their stuff before Isobel Campbell left was definitely their best!

One of the best albums of recent years was the magnificent Isobel Campbell /Mark Lanegan collaboration The Ballad Of The Broken Seas in 2006. Although one would have though their collaboration a very odd one indeed, their totally diverse styles meshed magnificently well across the entire album.

And the great news is that the dynamic(ish) duo will release a follow-up in May. I can’t wait to download it in March!!

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan announce new album details!

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan will release their second collaboration album, ‘Sunday At Devil Dirt’, later this year.

The pair – ex-members of Belle & Sebastian and Screaming Trees respectively – released their first joint album, the Mercury Music Prize-nominated ‘The Ballad Of The Broken Seas’, in 2006.

As was the case for that album, Campbell has written the music for their forthcoming album, with Lanegan providing joint vocals.

Before the album release on May 5, Lanegan will release another collaboration record – ‘Saturnalia’ by The Gutter Twins, aka Lanegan and former Afghan Wings frontman Greg Dulli. That’s out next week (March 3).
