Earlier this week Camera Obscura’s forthcoming LP, My Maudlin Career, was leaked. Apparently the leak is a standard V2 “scene release,” so at least it’s of half decent quality.
My Maudlin Career was produced by Swede Jari Haapalainen (of Peter, Bjorn & John, and the Concretes) and will definitely be better than Peter, Bjorn & John’s new album Living Thing.
If you haven’t heard Camera Obscura before you have to listen to their 2004 LP, Underachievers Please Try Harder – it’s quite enjoyable. Also, you can check out the title track from My Maudlin Career, provided (for free) by the band.
The album officially hits stores April 20th/21st thanks to 4AD records.
