Camera Obscura / Pony Up

Record Bar

For those all in a huff about driving 45 minutes to see Camera Obscura, keep in mind the band drove all the way from Scotland (which hasn't invented planes yet). The fabulous pop set is riding high on the strength of last year's "Let's Get Out of this Country" LP, which rocked harder than previous efforts yet kept the summery oldies-radio vibe that defined earlier efforts like "Underachievers Please Try Harder." Lead vocalist Tracyanne Campbell sings clear and true amidst a Phil Specter-like wall of sound, bouncing from bossanova rhythms to waltzes to country tearjerkers and 4/4 pop.
