For the sake of not having a complex and convoluted title, I’ve given all three editions separate articles which you should find in the recommendations below.

 

AWOO¬†is just chock-full of cinematic choral pop bliss. Ontario native Joel Gibb, the only consistent member of this band, has called his material “gay church folk music” – a humorous, yet pinpoint accurate descriptor.¬†AWOO, released 7 years ago, showcased the finest production the Hidden Cameras had yet which was actually done by Joel Gibb himself. Gibb, as far as I know, has done all the production on The Hidden Cameras albums.¬†AWOO¬†is something you need to listen to if you want to be cheered up, or you just want to have a fun time listening to “gay church folk music.” From the album opener “Death of a Tune,” to the title track “AWOO,” to “Lollipop” (where Gibb fashions a faux-English accent) I’m sure you’ll find yourself smiling somewhere in the midst of it. ¬†Listen to¬†AWOO¬†below via the Spotify stream and see what you think of it. Cheers!
