The art-folk music masters of the Toronto scene are lavishing another gem of a single upon us. ‘I Believe In The Good Of Life’, taken from the marvellous second album ‘Mississauga Goddam’, has a warm heart. Its upbeat strumming, uplifting strings and frankly strange lyrics (“I Believe, I believe, I believe in the good of life, as I kneel for a taste of man, I believe in the taste of wine as I do not step on a landmine“) cannot fail but raise a smile and get your toes tapping.

Curious lyrics aside, The Hidden Cameras have made consistently superb music that is thought provoking and a uniquely touching dimension that appears to flow so easily from Joel Gibb’s poetic words and vocals.
