Worth a Look - Camera Obscura
Camera Obscura is not new, but this is the first album of theirs to grace my ears. My Maudlin Career is worth your attention in my opinion. It's an album that sounds immediately familiar and comfortable, yet still fresh. It's for both the heartbroken and the madly in love; it will make sense no matter your perspective. Also, something about the production shouts "vintage!" to me, which I enjoy. Listen for yourself and see what you think. Below is a link to the Pitchfork review (where you can preview the entire album) as well as links to the band's Myspace page and official website (where you can download the title track for free). Right now the standout tracks for me are "French Navy" and "Forests and Sands".
