On the title track of Camera Obscura's fourth album, My Maudlin Career, Tracyanne Campbell sings, "This maudlin career has come to an end/ I don't want to be sad again. As usual, she's being sincerely ironic. Camera Obscura fans will be pleased to know that she's still turning out maudlin torch songs with apparent ease. It is a record of the most immoderate sentiment: Thirty seconds in, on "French Navy", you've already got a dusty library, a French sailor, and the moon on the silvery lake.

Camera Obscura originally captured my attention in April 2009 when I heard the title track of this album on a video segment on Good Morning America a few days prior to its release. On this album, as well as on each prior record, Camera Obscura blends all of the best aspects of music, past and present, together to make a sheer listener's delight

My Maudlin Career" lyrics. Camera Obscura Lyrics. You kissed me on the forehead Now this kiss is giving me a concussion We were love at first sight Now it's crush It's crushing I traced your steps through the city of romance lazily I took to the desert with your harshest words and they saved me. I'll bail you out again I've got the readies I'm not a child I know We're not going steady.

With each album, Camera Obscura offer just enough tangible difference, without compromising their cuteness or charm. From this example, the potential presents itself for a total evolution - away from country, folk, retro and pop and toward epic soundscape. The possibilities are endless and exciting.

If Camera Obscura's jump from Merge (and Elefant) to 4AD had you worried, or if you had a nagging suspicion that the switch was some kind of cynical career move and that they might change from being a small band with a knack for creating small moments of transcendent beauty and emotion to bland major-label-styled product (not that. My Maudlin Career is almost an exact copy of their previous album Let's Get Out of This Country, from Jari Haapalainen's echo-ey, layered production to the mix of ballads and uptempo songs to the preponderance of strings and the unflinchingly honest lyrics. And of course, Tracyanne Campbell's beguiling vocals and the note-perfect performances from the band (now down to a five-piece with the departure of trumpeter Nigel Baillie).
