HAVE YOU HEARD CAMERA OBSCURA?

I've heard of Camera Obscura, but didn't really listen to them. Today, I read a post on snark blog Idolator that read like an impassioned plea to check them out, so I did. They are a Scottish pop band, who the writer feels is ignored by the indie-skewing music journalists of today, and since they don't have a "story" or a "hook," they are overlooked. I enjoyed the song and video "The Sweetest Thing," and I thought you might too. They remind me a bit of Neko Case or Jenny Lewis.

Check out their song "Lloyd, I'm ready to be heartbroken." Really great jangle pop, if that's your thing.

thanks, Charles. "Jangle pop," sometimes, is my thing.
