TK # 72 - Camera Obscura - Let's Get Out of This Country (2006)

There’s enough heartbreak, broken promises and shattered dreams to last a lifetime on this record. But the 60’s girl group sheen, sharply drawn portraits and impeccable arrangements make feeling bad sound pretty good. The title track updates the universal theme of youthful escape - think "We Gotta Get Outta This Place" shot through with estrogen. Sadly beautiful.
