With the news of a new album on the way from Glasgow’s Camera Obscura, I got to listening to their past album and realized what I have to look forward. Part of me thinks they sound like Belle and Sebastian with mainly female vocals, yet another part of me thinks this band sounds like a vintage 1950′s overplayed jukebox group. Then I finally come to the conclusion that they are just…Great.
I’ve been salivating at the mouth for a few new tracks to surface in the form of mp3s, but alas they’re only playing them at live gigs around England. It’s been awhile since they’ve recorded an LP with their latest endeavor hitting shelves this summer titled, Lets Get Out Of This Country. The band, as well as their label, are extremely excited and pleased with the sound of their new album which means there has to be nothing but good noises on their disc.
They’ve announced a short US tour that is looking to expand in size, with the focal point being their appearance at SXSW this year. Check their site out for more information and upcoming details on their new release.
