When you put together an American rock musician and a Scottish singer/cellist, it's no surprise that you get beautiful modern alt-country tunes mixed with a sophisticated charm. Some critics have called Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan's collaboration "Beauty and the Grunge Beast."

The pair's latest release Hawk is getting rave reviews from all corners, and this pair has proven to be the perfect match of an indie pop sweetheart with a grunge master, making for some sultry laid-back American tunes.

Songs performed: "Time of the Season," "You Won't Let Me Down Again" and "Come On Over, Turn Me On."
