Here’s a Scottish band that I absolutely adore.  Their sound takes me back to my youth in the 80s.  My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing them at the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC recently.  They are amazing!  Tracyanne Campbell is the best songwriter of her generation.  I’m not exaggerating.

These days, most artists seem to be good for a single or two and a trough of fillers.  Tracyanne writes beautiful, memorable albums.  Camera Obscura have made me excited about music again.  Here’s one from their Let’s Get Out Of This Country album, entitled “If Looks Could Kill”  Enjoy!:
