iTunes Review

Chamber pop provocateur Joel Gibb leads The Hidden Cameras onto the dancefloor with ‘80s-inspired techno flourishes on the band’s sixth album, AGE. The Canadian collective’s loyal following will find The Hidden Cameras' yeasty mix of erotic imagery and sweeping melody as stimulating as ever. What’s new is a greater emphasis on programmed grooves, added with a judiciousness that enhances rather than undercuts the orchestral elements. Lyrically, AGE dissects human identity and desire in both decadent and life-affirming ways. As before, a love for liturgical sounds gives Gibb’s songs a solemnity that deepens their carnal bite. Tracks like the darkly sensuous “Skin & Leather” and the insistently catchy “Doom” fuse nonstop beats with monastic vocal tones to arresting effect. “Carpe Jugular” (a percolating invocation of vintage Depeche Mode and Erasure) and “Afterparty” (a slinky, dub-drenched number) veer deeply into electronica. Pianist Chilly Gonzales and singer Mary Margaret O’Hara (lending her uncanny tones to the string-draped “Gay Goth Scene”) make crucial contributions.

Customer Reviews

Awesome cameras!

So happy these guys are still around composing such amazing harmony!Thanks for the gift. Love the album, love the cover art, love the cameras!

The Hiddden Cameras Rock!

I have no idea who this group is, but they have produced a beautiful, lush sound! There are moments when I'm reminded of early Depeche Mode, othe times a hint of Pet Shop Boys from the Go West era, but Hidden Cameras go way beyond those sounds and have created a really unique groove. I've already listened to the whole thing twice, and I just bought it this morning! Highly recommended!

The best yet!

I just can't say how much I love this album. Great mood, sounds, and lyrics. My favorite from the hidden cameras to date :). These songs were worth the wait!

Years Active: '00s, '10s

With a mix of queer politics, explicit sexuality, symphonic indie pop, and theatrical spectacle that borders on the religious, Toronto's the Hidden Cameras are the brainchild of singer/songwriter/guitarist Joel Gibb. The 2001 debut album Ecce Homo -- a collection of four-track demos released on Gibb's own Evil Evil imprint -- introduced a stripped-down version of the Hidden Cameras' witty, acoustic-based songwriting, which drew comparisons to the Magnetic Fields and Belle & Sebastian. Ecce Homo also...
