Sometime protégées of Belle & Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch, Scottish indie rockers Camera Obscura have hit a winning streak with critics for their last few releases. . . not that you could tell from their music. No matter how many major keys the band plays, frontwoman Tracyanne Campbell has cultivated a bittersweet coo, which gives the music a sense of lovesick anticipation that rarely resolves. Openers Papercuts play similar pining pop, their only downfall being that they sometimes sound too dreamy and get lost in the song.
