I Dreamed We Fell Apart


Memphis
I Dreamed We Fell Apart
(Paper Bag)
You would think that Stars frontman Torquil Campbell would be satisfied that his band pretty much owns the lush-pop throne in this country. But no. He has to dive into Euro-dance-pop with Memphis, a band he formed in 2002 with multi-instrumentalist Chris Dumont. Think Pet Shop Boys on tranquilizers mixed with Campbell’s love of a hushed, pretty melody. “Hey Mister Are You Awake?” and “East Van” might meander, but the rest of this sleepy good time will unfold itself to those with patience.
