Isobel Campbell 'There Is No Other…' LP
Isobel Campbell is a Scottish singer-songwriter, cellist and composer who rose to prominence in the Scottish indie pop band ‘Belle and Sebastian' before releasing 3 albums with Mark Lanegan (Mark Lanegan - ex Queens Of The Stone Age, Screaming Trees).
From Isobel: "My whole life I’ve been a slowpoke. Anyone who knows me will confirm. I’m very thorough, yet exceedingly slow. I notice things faster individuals do not. Always last in school races. Always last out the gate. Always late for absolutely everything. Modern life bemuses me in a lot of ways. My whole life I’ve always wondered ‘What’s the rush?’ and I suppose this song encapsulates that. Sometimes I ponder ‘What are we? Us humans? Are we so in the rat race are we militant ants or bees in the hive or what?’
I choose quality and substance over speed every time. Living in an over-populated metropolis these days I dig my heels in even more, I go slower than ever."
