Let's Get Out of This Country (2006)
...so we can find more jangle pop bands from Glasgow, Scotland. This was a favorite album of yesteryear, but the track "Razzle Dazzle Rose" popped up on my shuffle, and so I've decided to toss it up here anyhow. Tracyanne Campbell graces the album with consistently beautiful, melodic vocals that put Zooey Deschannel to shame. "Lloyd, I'm Ready to Be Heart Broken" begins the album as a sing-along pop tune, setting the theme of heartbreak for the rest of the album. It is a simple album that doesn't stray from everything else Camera Obscura has ever done, but it still succeeds. It's gorgeous pop. It puts a dumb smile on your face. Just try it out.
