indie pop perfection.

Super clever and super catchy twee/indie pop that accentuates the charm and deadpan, witty lyricism of Tracyanne Campbell, but also goes for full enough arrangements to retain attention through prolonged periods where she isn't singing. Camera Obscura has a talent in generating melodies that are catchy and memorable, but melancholy at the same time.

Edit: Initially underrated; increased score from 77 to 82.

☆☆½ ~ Relatively good album. It sounds something irregular in certain moments.

A scottish band, a spanish label and a swedish producer work together for such a lovely, pop album, an open source of eternal sunshine and good humour.
