broken social scene



If you read pitchfork, and let's be honest I know you do (even you complain constantly about hating the reviews and often accuse others of being slaves to their best new music reccomendations) then it doesn't come as to news to you that Broken Social Scene (the band that originated the "being from canada" + "ecstatic pitchfork review" = "enormous indie cred" forumla that the arcade fire recently cribbed) is releasing their third full length LP October 4th, and that is not called "Windsurfing Nation", but is merely self titled. What you may not know is that you can now download 7/4 (shoreline), a track from their forthcoming album.

Having recorded upwards of 50 tracks during their recent studio time. The sheer volume of new material created a pleasant problem for the band, what to do with all of it? There were originally whispers of a double album, but now it seems that half will be released on the aforementioned self titled album, the other half which will be released later next year (or so we're told).

If you've seen Broken Social Scene live in the last year and have heard so of the new songs they've been testing out you can't help but be very excited for this new record. They've consistently put on amazing shows that rival the very best I've seen, and every new song seems to equal to the very best of "You Forgot It In People".

In the mean time you can also listen a live acoustic album that they recorded in paris which consists of several live versions of "You Forgot It In People" tracks as well an Apostle of Hustle track, and few non album offerings.

Sounds a lot like Cause=Time to me.

I'm at work so I can't listen to this song. Still, I bet it's great. I lost my interest in Broken Social Scene for a while, but when I saw them open for Dinosaur Jr. I remembered why I loved them in the first place. They're amazing and their live show is filled with an astounding energy. Before the show I wasn't even really excited to see them play, but within a minute of them taking the stage I got excited. I can't wait to listen to this track when I get home.
