Mood Music: Camera Obscura Begs Us Not to Go

Camera Obscura treat their covers of soft-rockin' forgotten hits not as guilty pleasures, but as sources of warmth and comfort, like homemade chocolate chip cookies-- always the best, even if imperfect, because you grew up with them.

Camera Obscura have been covering mid-1960s hit "Baby Don't Go" for a while now. Campbell & co. recently performed this giggling rendition for Public Radio International's "Fair Game" program. What's most striking is the ease with which the light strums and tambourine splashes make the cutesy song one you could almost mistake for a Camera Obscura original. The beat goes on, and such. More cookies please. And make them double chocolate chip. You know I can't get me enough chocolate.
