Album of the day: The Hidden Cameras - The Smell of Our Own

And this album doesn't only rock because of lyrics like, "That there is splendor in the harshness of bum".

It isn't available on the torrents, so I'm gonna host it here for a bit. If you haven't listened to it, you are in for a real treat. It's a classic, and you'll have a new found band in The Hidden Cameras, who play their home town Toronto quite often. Highlights include tracks 1, 2, 6, and 7, but all 10 are pretty great. I'm pretty sure most of you have heard this album, but as it has snuck into my top ten recently, I thought I'd reshare.

Download here. (ok, link down for now.. apparently there has been a hack attack!)

Ban Marriage, live and AWESOME.

"Acoustic" version of Ban Marriage.

Golden Streams, plus interview, on Q

This one sent shivers down my spine.

With Owen Pallett and Mike Olsen (Arcade Fire) I think.

It's an older album, but fundamental. Hopefully the above convinces you to download and listen.
