Camera Obscura Acoustic @ La Route du Rock

Last week we posted a video of Annie Clark (St. Vincent) performing acoustically at this very same venue. Today we bring you Camera Obscura, in all their glory. My Maudlin Career, the newest effort from these Brits, finds a darker tone than previous efforts before as the title would suggest; there is heartbreak at work here -- in the raw. Yet, the album is not with out some fantastic pop gems such as "French Navy," "The Sweetest Thing," and "Honey in the Sun." In this acoustic video, we have two out of the three of the latter -- "French Navy," "Honey in the Sun" and "James." The egg shaker guy in the background simply makes the entire video. Please enjoy.
