Hidden Cameras Awoo
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Arts & Crafts
Hallelujah! Or should I say, holy fuck! If there's anything to know about Toronto's premier homosexual folk-pop chorale, it's that either phrase can apply. Principal songwriter Joel Gibb and his troupe-up to 16 members outfitted with guitars, violins, glockenspiel, drum machines, church bells, and organ-make an orchestral racket that's formulaic while completely subverting formula. Not every song on Awoo will make you whoop, but the tender conviction of "Follow These Eyes" and the reaffirming gospel of "Death of a Tune" will make you want to join the chorus.
