Recommended by us on 31st May 2013. 3 people love me. Be the 4th...
8/10 according to Ian (Norman Records staff) 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.

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
