While mention of Camera Obscura is generally a pleasant exercise in extolling the wonderful vocals of Tracyanne Campbell’s it must not be forgotten that there is much more to the Glasgow collective. On ‘Lunar Sea’ Campbell actually takes a back seat and it adds a beautiful diversity to the album (‘Underachievers Please Try Harder’) it’s taken from. This is softly focused indie pop and it has meant that the band have slowly wrestled the crown from fellow Glaswegians Belle & Sebastian. Their latest album ‘My Maudlin Career’ protects that status and will surely be given a lush runout when they hit the Andrew’s Lane Theatre this Thursday (30th April). We’ve got 2 pairs of passes to the gig so if you’d like to go just drop us an email quickly to avoid being left heartbroken.
Update: Congrats to Justin, Mark and friends! Tickets are still available here. KD
