The Hidden Cameras

Age (Evil Evil)

It would appear Joel Gibb now is The Hidden Cameras. A changing cast of players pitches in on Age. Intermittently, we get spirited violin and cellos, sometimes a dozen voice choir. Then, on "Gay Goth Scene," here's Mary Margaret O'Hara reprising beyond-Yoko yelps she performed for the mutant in the film Splice. "We conditioned you first," cries Gibb as alarmed parents, preceding a cacophonous finish. "Year of the Spawn" closes with an ominous sustained drone blasting over the lovely strings. Those who liked the band for its light-hearted transgression may find Age a bit starchy, but the noise it brings should lure curious new ears.
