The Hidden Cameras, 'Awoo' (Arts & Crafts)

Awoo
Critical Mass
Label: Arts & Crafts

by Adrienne Day

Joel Gibb, frontman for this self-described "gay folk church music" band, is the seamy, sex-fueled yang to the ascetic yin of the Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt. Backed by a flea-market chamber-pop orchestra and surprisingly danceable beats, he sings about lollipops (yes, it's a metaphor) and "working in the boneyard" (on the album's sunny title track). You can almost see Gibb's smile as he rips religious intolerance a new you-know-what.
