Lean over on the bookcase if you really wanna get straight.

On Tuesday a very good CD will be released: Let's Get Out Of This Country by Camera Obscura. I am expecting that this one will end up in my Top 10 based on what I've heard. The title track is sublime and the first single namechecks one of my all-time favorite artists, Lloyd Cole. The song is called Lloyd, I'm Ready To Be Heartbroken - it's an answer to Lloyd's own classic song Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken? which is only one of the finest songs ever written.

Check out the sweet, kicky Camera Obscura video here:

And a bonus Lloyd Cole video (circa 1987) for the amazing Jennifer She Said. The final da-da-da-da-duh-duh bit is one of those pop moments that always sweeps me up.
