Desire Lines

I have a well-documented weakness for Scottish and Irish bands (well, the ones with female singers, anyway), and one of my favorites is Camera Obscura.

Most of my favorite bands don't record anymore (Decrepitude Alert). Camera Obscura, though, is still going strong, and they released Desire Lines today.

I was so stoked about this album coming out that I actually checked out pre-release reviews, which I've never done for an album. In my entire life.

This is a more reflective, mellow album than the exuberant My Maudlin Career, but it's still full of carefully crafted, complex, beautiful songs.
