3 hours
First broadcast:
Monday 10 June 2013

Camera Obscura are live in session playing tracks from their new album Desire Lines. This is the bands 5th album after forming in 1996 in Glasgow. The album took 4 years to make; written in Glasgow the band then travelled to Portland, Oregon to work with producer Tucker Martine (REM, My Morning Jacket). They returned a month later to finish it, enlisting the vocal talents of Neko Case and My Morning Jacket's Jim James.

Lauren takes a closer look at the best of the day's releases in New Music Monday. Plus, some brilliant free music in MPFree and take some time to enjoy a rather fabulous Headphone Moment.
