Camera Obscura

The Scottish band -- not to be confused with the US band of the same name. Pretty much a band who decided to be Belle and Sebastian, but not at all in a bad way.

Information: Camera Obscura
Suggested First Purchase: Underachievers Please Try Harder

Underachievers Please Try Harder (2003) -- If you wish there were more Belle and Sebastian albums, just get this. They're softer, girl-voice-heavier, not quite as rocking and bright, and pretty great. The highlights on this album include "Suspended from Class" and "Teenager."
