Camera Obscura – Lloyd, I’m Ready To Be Heartbroken (CD Review)

The delightfully twee Camera Obscura – who now must be filling Belle & Sebastian’s role since they have been getting less twee of late – have a new single to get your heart racing while you stand enigmatically in 1960’s thrift shop fashion holding a second hand copy of a cult novel. They are that kind of band, and have that kind of sound; they also do it very well with a grand sound that layers a multitude of instruments with delicacy and passion.
