Memphis In The Meantime

While I put the finishing touches on my top 25 albums of 2006 post, here’s a taste of great band I just discovered recently.

Memphis is the duo of Stars singer Torquil Campbell and his long time friend Chris Dumont. Their new disc A Little Place In The Wilderness was released in Canada a little earlier this year but has US release coming in early 2007. It features guest appearances from James Shaw of Metric (bass, trumpet, drums, mix) and Josh Trager of the Sam Roberts Band (drums).

Softly strummy guitars, ethereal keyboards and occasional horn flourishes all topped by smoothly flowing vocals evoke an essence of peacefulness and relaxing calm. As perfect for laying in a summer meadow watching clouds flow by as it is for sitting by a warm winter fire with snow slowly falling outside the window.
