Camera Obscura – “French Navy” – I am really digging the latest album My Maudlin Career lately, in large part to singer Tracyanne Campbell’s voice. They play a similar style of indie pop as fellow Glaswegians Belle and Sebastian, so thats a plus as well.

Miike Snow – “Burial” – Another standout track from the self-titled album. Video was filmed in India.

Weezer – “Kids/Pokerface” – An official video for what they’ve been doing on tour this year. The video’s a bit aggravating as it keeps switching from widescreen to 4:3 view. If you are prone to epileptic fits, I would be cautious when watching this one.
