Tonight in Seattle:  

Camera Obscura give us a video and tour dates, but still kinda mysterious

Folks near and far are getting excited about the impending release Camera Obscura album. The Glasgow band will release My Maudlin Career on April 21 (4AD) and are marking the newest effort by finally announcing some US tour dates and posting a video for the single "French Navy."

I for one have loved the discussions speculating whether they were going to be surprising us at a music fest of the east or west ilk and when and where they'll play Seattle. Alas, the latter mystery has been solved!
