Gentle as petals and confetti, this. Clearly enamoured with all things 1960s?symphonic pop, girl singers, movie soundtracks and Ossie Clark floral print dresses, that end of the market?Isobel Campbell’s string-laden first record under her own name makes for breezy easy listening. Not a million miles away from her work with Belle And Sebastian and The Gentle Waves, it’s saved from twee tedium by Campbell’s sumptuous orchestrations and sly wit. You’ll find it impossible not to fall for the swooning strings and haunting, widescreen melancholia of “There Is No Greater Gold”, for instance, or the chi-chi charm of “Johnny Come Home”. Quite beautiful.
