Better known as the froggy, overdramatic male crooner in Stars, Torquil Campbell pairs with New Yorker Chris Dumont for the countrified side project Memphis. More summery and atmospheric than the name might suggest (imagine the Sea And Cake without the jazz training), tracks such as "I Am The Photographer" show off Campbell's love for lightweight bedroom pop without feeling disposable. Steel pedal guitars and Smiths-type sentiments give a headiness to all the heart. With the Barr Brothers.
