Song of the Day - November 24, 2006

The Hidden Cameras are a Toronto based collective of approximately 13 musicians. They have described their music as "gay church folk music" and been labeled orchestral pop by others. Their latest release AWOO is not as overtly explicit as previous albums, but rather more of a grand collection of orchestral pop ditties. The music soars, the melodies are catchy, and if you don't pay close attention to the lyrics you may never be aware of their past notoriety. Great songs are abundant. "AWOO," "Learning the Lie," and "She's Gone" immediately come to mind as great tunes. Yet, it is the slightly darker "Follow These Eyes" that haunts me as I listen to the album. The track is not as beautifully happy as the aforementioned tunes, which all have bouncy melodies while maintaining a sarcastic view of the world. Life isn't always happy or easy, yet The Hidden Cameras have found a way to release the beauty of the darker moments. Click here to listen.
