Songs You May Have Missed #151


Camera Obscura: “Lloyd, I’m Ready to be Heartbroken” (2006)


Glasgow’s Camera Obscura revives sounds of 60’s pop to delightful effect, similarly to The School (Songs You May Have Missed #79, Recommended Albums #20) but with less of a lean toward bubblegum girl group sounds and more of the orchestral country pop flavor of Connie Francis and Skeeter Davis. Tracyanne Campbell’s delivery, with just a touch of a Scottish accent, is definitely part of the quirky appeal.

Another example of indie pop plundering the pop gold of past decades and melting it down to make pretty new things.
