The Rob Gordon Shuffle, 5.07.06

Camera Obscura – “Lloyd, I’m Ready To Be Heartbroken”: mp3
I haven’t listened to Let’s Get Out Of This Country enough to judge it against the band’s past material, but it sounds like Camera Obscura have finally stepped out of Belle & Sebastian’s shadow. What a chorus.

Winter Vacation – “The Greenest Age”: mp3
It’s been a while since I listened to The Netherlands, 1980, but I gave it a spin last night and found it just as charming and fun as when I last heard it. This is how most of my personal recordings turn out, only waaaaay better.

Liam Singer – “Father, I See”: mp3
This is from his last one, but Singer has a new album due out this month. I’m counting the days.
