arthuryu-in%20camera.jpgThe debut release from Sub Pop's new imprint Hardly Art, In Camera is an album which is quietly making waves. Arthur and Yu are the childhood nicknames of singers Grant Olsen and Sonya Westcott. It's a moniker that makes sense, as much of In Camera has the youthful naivete that served forefathers Galaxie 500, The Pastels and Yo La Tengo so well. With plenty of acoustic guitar, melodica, glockenspiel and bells, the record sits well in the "twee" section with enough country longing to keep its sweetness just the right side of sour. An endearing, lovely grower.
