2006, Part Nineteen

The Hidden Cameras - Awoo (2006)

Due out later this year, The Hidden Cameras' latest effort is shaping up to win us over with consistency. Joel Gibb and friends provide another nice romp through intepersonal dynamics with his/their own trademark glee. Gibb is one of the most consistent songwriters existing in "indie" today, and once again he employs the lush arrangments of indie's favorite composer-misanthrope, which has me instantly excited. That is to say, really, you should listen to anything with Owen Pallett's string arrangements, and Hidden Cameras perhaps marry them to their compositions better than any other band I can think of. Here's the title track, which will be released as a single in September:
