The new Camera Obscura album was the most-played last week at WXYC, and for several weeks now, the band has been on the Hype Machine's "most blogged about list." They've been less Obscura than Common-a. For good reason. The album is very good, and their live shows have been getting raves. Here they are in an intimate setting, live at the KEXP studio.
