If you should ever find yourself scoring an independent film and need a love song or two, look no further than Camera Obscura’s latest, My Maudlin Career. Maybe it’s the slight Scottish tinge to lead singer Tracyanne Campbell’s vocals, but her voice is crazy appealing and the way she sings about relationships and all that jazz is endearing, perhaps overly so, as indie films often are. I feel like all the songs on the new record should accompany a black and white photo album or some shit. But in a good way. If you dig Belle & Sebastian and/or Jenny Lewis, check it.
