Like many U.K. bands, Camera Obscura shines brightest on its singles. The Scottish sextet's albums are remarkably consistent, but there are always about three gems from each batch that particularly stand out and lodge themselves snugly in your brain. So simple math dictates that catching the band as it tours with its newest album, "My Maudlin Career," would be an ideal time to see the indie-pop classicists. If early singles "Eighties Fan" and "Suspended From Class" were like subtle black-and-white movies, new standouts "French Navy" and "The Sweetest Thing" burst in vibrant technicolor, all sweeping strings and bouncy backing vocals but never losing their bittersweet touch.
