8/10 according to on Thu 30 May, 2013

Fifth album by Camera Obscura on 4AD, ‘Desire Lines’ sees the Glasgow band sounding more polished and fresh, this is a great pop record with a quite a grown up sound, ‘This Is Love (feels Alright)’ is a lovely slice of Belle And Sebastian indie with a nice clarinet tune and there’s some great keyboard work on ‘New Year’s Resolution’, with the beautiful tones of singer Tracyanne Campbell making this another great Camera Obscura record.

With guest vocals from Neko Case and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James ‘Desire Lines’ is a perfect mix of danceable indie pop and country-esque ballads in the same vein as Trespassers William, The Delgados and Yo La Tengo, the superb guitar twinklings of Kenny Mckeeve and a little splash of horns on ‘I Missed Your Party’ make for a fine record indeed and one that fans will keep coming back to again and again.

So, what do you think?
