i see that, like that of the 7", the album sleeve is recycled from paul p's & joel's gay goth zine. hope the album comes with more of the artwork.

Been streaming the new album again in anticipation of the gig next week. Fuck me, they know how to make everything sound like a parade of joy, regardless of what they are singing about! I forget sometimes. I should never forget. So, so special.

first half of the album (mini-album, i guess) is definitely more immediate, but overall it's great. i wish "afterparty" and "carpe jugular" were shorter.

i think "gay goth scene" (mary margaret o'hara on backing vocals, apparently) and "ordinary over you" are my favourites.

roll on wednesday!

a couple of nice little touches on the download that comes with the lp:
comments section: Thanks for buying vinyl and being awesome!
genre section: Evil Cock Rock
can't believe how large the barcode on the sleeve is, though :-/

great show tonight!

does anyone who has the uk the smell of our own lp have a rear-of-sleeve image that isn't one of these, and if so, what is it? just wondering.

Image.

the above are the only ones i've seen, but i assume there may be more, for instance from among these images that used to be on the band website:

Coming this Autumn, The Hidden Cameras bring it back home to release their sixth studio album. 'Home On Native Land' marks the beginning of a new chapter for singer-songwriter Joel Gibb and The Hidden Cameras. An ode to Gibb's native country, he returns to Canadian soil both physically and philosophically.

The first track to be shared is also the albums' lead. On 'Day I Left Home' Gibb announces a departure, "I burned everything I own, left it in a pile smouldering," leading The Hidden Cameras on a search for something simpler, more beautiful and pure, playing with genre and experimenting with old sounds.

Written and recorded over ten years by Joel Gibb, this seminal album once again sees Gibb assembling friends, bandmates and icons including Mary Margaret O'Hara, Rufus Wainwright, Feist, Bahamas, Ron Sexsmith, Neil Tennant and longtime collaborator and producer Don Kerr to accompany him on this adventure in revisionist history. On 'Home On Native Land', The Hidden Cameras explore the expansive musical landscape of the Canadian countryside delivering an album rich with feelings of lonesome cowboy blues and heartbreak to toe-tapping rhythms, and campfire sing-a-longs. Each song is a journey beckoning the listener to follow - to gather 'round the fire, sing until you fall asleep and share the same dream. It's a place that you might not have been before but which feels like home.

Gibb borrows from the classic country songbook, reimagining soulful standards like 'Dark End of the Street', and 'Don't Make Promises' originally recorded by Tim Harden. 'Log Driver's Waltz' is The Hidden Camera's cover of one of the most successful and beloved Canadian folk songs of all time. 'He is the Boss of Me', is Gibb covering himself with a rerecording of an early 4-track demo from 2001's 'Ecce Homo', now given a full studio treatment.

Transitioning into the genre with infectious melodies on the original tracks 'Big Blue' and 'Drunk Dancer's Waltz', with 'Home On Native Land' Gibb reaches into the past to find new ground, while singing playfully pointed lyrics oozing with hopefulness and sorrow.

'Home On Native Land' will be available this Autumn on Outside Music, full date to follow.

Was a bit unnerved by the whole campfire concept/thing, but that's absolutely gorgeous!

That is GORGEOUS. Quite a line up for the LP. Should be a cracker.
And we just can't wait to make more mistakes and to fluff our breaks, and to stuff our faces with cake.

Has anyone heard their cover of "I Wanna Be Startin' Something"? It's brilliant, I don't know how old it is.
Fuck your tea room.

Is that the Michael Jackson tune? Or is that "Do You Wanna Be Starting Something"? Anyway, link!

Okay, so I had a look. It comes from a 'Tribute To Thriller" that fell off of the front of Rolling Stone circa 2012. And yes, it's really good! (though it helps that they got to do the best song by a long chalk)
