Recording: The Hidden Cameras

Artist: The Hidden Cameras

Song: Carpe Jugular

Recorded at The Great Hall ("Long Winter: Year 2, Volume 3"), January 10, 2013.

The Hidden Cameras - Carpe Jugular

Full review to follow. With jam-packed rooms and three stages going at once at a few points, there's just no way you can see everything at a Long Winter any more. You just have to sorta dive in and see where the current takes you.

Getting ready to launch new album Age (out next week!) Hidden Cameras were the night's surprise headliners. Their main set was short, but was devoted to playing the bulk of the album, a welcome chance to hear the new stuff delivered with slightly giddy, spontaneously go-for-gusto verve. The songs will get a little smoother, but it was great to hear them sounding still like fresh works-in-progress. This one in particular sounded like a hit, a bent disco jam that had the dancefloor quaking.
