'We met by the moon on a silvery lake'

Tuesday, April 28, 2009



Do you love Camera Obscura as much as I do? The newest album was released on the 21st of this month and I can't stop listening to it. The video is to their single 'French Navy'. Such great lyrics and the video makes me wish I was on holiday... très romantique.



Have you seen them in concert before? I'm hoping to catch them when they're here in June for the first time. If you've seen them please tell me what you thought. Also, you can visit *HERE* for 'Lloyd, I'm Ready to Be Heartbroken' from one of the older albums (just in case you don't already have it).xx

Great song! And I really like "Lloyd, I'm Ready to Be Heartbroken". Because I used listen to Lloyd Cole a lot when I was younger.

Good golly that's god - perfect spring/summer pop. Have you checked out Fabienne Delsol a French Popstress who I'm sure will be right up your 'rue'

Andrea said...

Aw, I love Camera Obscura! I think you would also like Daphne, a French singer, and Au Revoir Simone.

Oh! I just wanted to tell you I bought the CD online and am waiting for it to be delivered.
