The Hidden Cameras - The Smell of Our Own
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Hidden Cameras - The Smell of Our OwnThey call their sound “gay folk church music” and it’s an apt description: with leader Joel Gibb’s homo-erotic lyrics backed by heavenly, ecclesiastical vocals, guitars and organs, the sprawling Toronto ensemble has created a unique mélange. Up to now, the Cameras have been a local cult phenomenon. That should change on the strength of a deal with England’s Rough Trade label and such powerful pop fare as the ultra-sweet “Boys of Melody” and the rousing “Breathe on It.” Think Pet Shop Boys minus the disco.
