Album Notes
For MY MAUDLIN CAREER, its first full-length album for the 4AD label, the Scottish indie-pop act Camera Obscura presents another set of lovelorn tunes. Led by singer/guitarist Tracyanne Campbell, who deftly mixes cool detachment and simmering emotion, the Glasgow-based ensemble still sits on the more melancholy side of Belle & Sebastian's twee, retro-minded aesthetic, but it uses this quality as a virtue rather than a hindrance (see the drifting, slighty twangy songs "Away with Murder" and "Forests and Sands"). Campbell and company also charm on the breezy pop numbers such as "French Navy" and "Swans," sometimes evoking a less narcoleptic Mazzy Star.

Spin (p.85) - "On their fourth album, this Scottish indie-pop band's fondness for woeful heartache and Phil Spector-esque production reaches a poignant peak."
Spin (p.102) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Strings and hearts swoon, handclaps and snares pop, and bells and chimes ring out. It might sound formulaic, if it weren't so gorgeous."
Billboard (p.29) - "The group's fourth album overflows with the signature mix of sticky-sweet lyrics backed by grandiose pop arrangements."
Q (Magazine) (p.119) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "MY MAUDLIN CAREER sighs and swells with a shimmering, understated beauty..."
Paste (magazine) - "[B]lissed-out orchestral indie pop, enlivened with classic Motownisms and overflowing with silvery tones..."
Pitchfork (Website) - "The album feels as if it could have been released any time in the last 50-odd years, but the inspired arrangements -- and, of course, Campbell's indelible voice -- make it sound fresh, too."
Clash (magazine) (p.108) - "['French Navy'] carries plenty of tinny charisma, bolstered by a brass band and the wholesome clarity of Camera Obscura's unfailing musical consistency."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.80) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Singer Tracyanne Campbell's voice retains its alluring coquettishness on pretty much all of MMC..."
