My Maudlin Career

Since I've been home, pretty much the only thing I've been listening to is Camera Obscura's latest album, My Maudlin Career. It came out in April 2009, but I didn't get it until right before leaving school, and it is well on its way to becoming that one album that I listen to over and over all summer. The songs are kind of sad, but also super-cute! Some of my favorite songs from this album are "French Navy" (I know MarĂ­a really likes this one, too), "The Sweetest Thing," "James," and "Honey in the Sun." There are some adorable lyrics like: Are my eyes the coldest blue?/ You said once this was true/ If it is, I don't know what I'll do/ 'cause I'm stuck with them/ and they're stuck on you, from "You Told a Lie." SO cute!

Watch the video for "French Navy" here.

Love, Jillian
