Hidden Cameras Awoo

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.

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.
