I couldn't find a decent thread for them, anyway all i wanted to say is that they've signed to the great 4AD label. I'm quite sure many of you will have an album by a band/artist who are/were on 4AD.
I reckon the new Camera Obscura album will do really well now, they certainly deserve a decent selling album.
I've got all their old b-sides if you have any requests:
 

oye terence

ampersand after ampersand
they are such a lovely band.they seem to get better and better with everything they do.


charlie, I can't seem to find my copy of "I love my jean" would you happen to have that?

Nearly all the b-sides from the last album's sessions were worthy of an album place themselves...very Smiths like in that respect. Nice to see a band still appreciate and respect the single format..a dying art.
This is a lovely little ditty.

Yes, I am spleen
Thanks for the uploads. Love Camera Obscura. Anyone know when the new album's out?
 

Hidden By Rags

treading lightly
I have to appreciate that they have these singles/eps available in digital format (11 of them! Are there more?). My vinyl buying days are so far and few in between.

I can't wait to hear the Peel sessions. Thanks for the links everyone.

Each of the singles from the last album had a cover version exclusive to the 7" and not on the CD...similar to what Morrissey does.
Covers were:
Abba's - Super Trooper
Sheena Easton's - Modern Girl
Skeeter Davis's - I Can't Stay Mad At You
