Out of This Country: Camera Obscura in Madrid

Not only did Camera Obscura release one of the most delightful indie pop records of the year, but they also have a blog (as verified by the official site). Well, now that's just irresistible! The band is just one of a number of good Scottish bands, and Tracyanne reminds me a bit of Helen Marnie.

Seeing as how they'll be heading off to Spain shortly, hopefully followed by some North American dates, here's their set from Los Conciertos de Radio 3 in Madrid. They've had quite a few appearances, but I'm pretty sure that this one is from November 11th, 2002. If any of you speak Spanish, perhaps you could verify that. I suppose the only downside is that nothing from the shimmering Let's Get Out of This Country appears here, but KCRW's got you covered.

Mahogany is bringin' back the shoegaze with a record release party at the Bowery Ballroom this evening. I highly recommend the album in question, Connectivity!
