Camera Obscura – “Underachievers Please Try Harder”

200px-Underachievers_please_try_harderVenga!, una de discos bonitos. Camera Obscura son un grupo escocés que ya cuenta con cinco discos grandes en su discografía. Yo les conocí por su primer disco “Biggest Bluest Hi-Fi” (2001), dos cosas me empujaron a hacerme con el disco sin haberlo escuchado, lo editaba Elefant (lo que ya era una gran garantía) y lo producía Stuart Murdoch el líder de Belle And Sebastian, uno de mis grupos favoritos. “Biggest Bluest Hi-Fi” era un buen disco, me sigue gustando, aunque para mi gusto era demasiado parecido a lo que hacían Belle And Sebastian y eso lo lastraba. Con su segundo disco ,”Underachievers Please Try Harder”,consiguieron convencerme completamente, aquí hay preciosas canciones “Suspended From Class”, “Teenager”, “Let Me Go Home”, “Your Picture” , esta última me recuerda muchísimo al “Famous Blue Raincoat” de Leonard Cohen.

En definitiva un bonito disco que me convenció para seguir hasta hoy la carrera de Camera Obscura. Si os gusta el POP deberíais darles una oportunidad.

For your birthday she sent you a card
She didn’t sign her name, she gave an autograph
And now she’s trying to call your bluff, she your true love?
We knew the boy who went from Mod to Ted
She asked matter of fact had he gone off his head
He was uncomplaining as a tree not a thing like me

You’re not a teenager, so don’t act like one
Sure she is a heartbreaker, does she have one?
Is it down to me, down to me? We both rarely speak

I went for a stroll after dark
I thought of you and her while staring at the black
I didn’t have you down for being easily led or the girl well read

You’re not a teenager, so don’t act like one
Sure she is a heartbreaker, does she have one?
Is it down to me, down to me? We both rarely speak

Bonus. En su tercer LP, “Let’s Get Out Of This Country”, le contestaron a Lloyd Cole, como ya conté aquí con una preciosa canción. “Lloyd, I’m Ready To Be Heartbroken”.
