KEXP Suggests… Camera ObscuraLet’s Get Out of This Country (Merge)

“This Scottish band’s 3rd album is another lovely outing of orchestral pop, combining Tracyanne Campbell’s fragile vocals and melancholy lyrics with some gorgeous pop melodies. While they’ve often been compared to fellow Scots Belle & Sebastian, their sound is also strongly rooted in the music of ‘60s girl groups and other purveyors of ‘60s pop.” – Don Yates
