Hidrogenesse recently released an EP made up of 5 versions of songs from Origin:Orphan.
Hidrogenesse met Joel Gibb in the summer of 2009, and he gave gave them the vocal tracks of a couple of songs to try to remix them. Hidrogenesse did “He Falls To Me”, and some months later they had the idea of working on more songs to make this EP, so they asked Joel to send them the vocal tracks of other songs from Origin:Orphan album. The versions made by Hidrogenesse cover their favourites electronic music styles: early european synth-pop, from Kraftwerk to The Human League, from O.M.D. to D.A.F. The songs of the Hidden Cameras, so classic and simple, are perfect for creating new environments and different rhythms.
You can purchase the album here, and watch their video for He Falls To Me by clicking on the image below.

The Live at Lime session is now available here. Below is a description from the good folks at the? Limewire Store:
The eyes of the world are transfixed on Vancouver — and all things Canadian — thanks to the 2010 Winter Olympics. So it’s good timing that The Hidden Cameras one of the best indie bands from the Great White North is up next in LimeWire Store’s Live At Lime series. While on tour supporting their critically-heralded Origin:Orphan (Arts & Crafts) the multimember Canadian indie-poppers laid down a six-track EP a few hours before a gig in New York City. Featuring new versions of songs from their recent full-length Live At Lime with The Hidden Cameras presents an even more intimate look at the group’s irreverent and infectious tunes.
Happy new year everyone. The first Hidden Cameras UK show in 2010 is a benefit for the Albert Kennedy Trust. If you are in the area please come and support. For more information please click here. We recently added a few more dates to the routing.
The Hidden Cameras are readying to head out on their first European jaunt in support of their fourth full-length, Origin:Orphan. The band will begin in Hamburg before heading through the UK.
