Broken Social Scene

Broken Social Scene materialized in 1999 when K.C. Accidental's Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning, formerly of By Divine Right, bonded their friendship into a band. They spent the next few years honing an atmospheric rock sound in their native Toronto and the dynamic was great. Feel Good Lost marked their debut album in 2001 and introduced a revolving cast of Canadian indie musicians. Drew's fellow mate from Do Make Say Think, Charles Spearin, was added to the band, as well as Evan Cranley (Stars), James Shaw, and Emily Haines (Metric). By the time their guitar-fueled sophomore effort, You Forgot It in People, was released in fall 2002, Broken Social Scene had become an 11-piece collective. Jason Collett, Andrew Whiteman, Justin Peroff, and Leslie Feist fulfilled the band's bombastic, orchestrated sound, and critics loved it. You Forgot It in People was a buzz among indie cohorts, and plans for a stateside release on Arts & Crafts was slated for the following summer. A surprise, however, coincided with those plans in spring 2003 when Broken Social Scene won a Juno for Alternative Album of the Year for You Forgot It in People.

In order to maintain praise from critics, the band issued its first ever B-sides and rarities collection, Bee Hives, in spring 2004. For the band's 2005 self-titled studio album, Broken Social Scene once again joined producer David Newfeld. Additional contributions by select members of Stars, Metric, Do Make Say Think, Raising the Fawn, the Dears, and others contributed to the ambitious sounds of Broken Social Scene. A joint North American tour with Feist followed its release. In 2007, Kevin Drew released the first installment in a series of "Broken Social Scene Presents" solo outings called Spirit If…, followed in 2008 by Brendan Canning’s Something for All of Us..., both of which featured appearances from nearly all the other members of the band. The group’s fifth full-length offering, Forgiveness Rock Record, arrived in May 2010. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

Lot of Sonic Youth in there!
I instantly started tingling.
It's almost like you guys don't care if my squirrel army succeeds or not!
such a talented group of people. I can never get sick of their sounds!
I tried to mimic the vocalist's pipes. Let's just say I need a lung transplant.
Love this band and all of their projects.

I don't understand how these folks can, time and again, make such a musical mess work so brilliantly.
The song "romance to the grave" has Sam Prekop of The Sea and Cake singing in it too. There's no mistaking his voice.
Epic
Is it a guy or a girl singing?! So confused.
Doing my homework, and they came on . And my ears just whistled with them. Happy to find them. They're smooth, and they're pretty mellow as well. Its a great indie feel, and relaxing motive they have ! (: Hey ! Follow me, too . Wooop C'x

seeing them tomorrow night...can' t wait...it can't come soon enough...
I love them.... ;)
Sat next to Justin Peroff (drummer) on a flight from Toronto. Hadn't heard of them before, listened to their stuff on MySpace and am an instant fan. Justin is a super nice guy, funny, cool, all that you'd want a cool indie drummer to be. And ridiculously hot. Ridick.

They are doing a Neil Young Project and just finished their next album. I cant wait to see em live.
Did anyone else buy "This Book is Broken"? It was pretty good, but not as good as the review said. :(
I bought it right when it came out, and I had to order it.
oh i didn't know that. I have heard alot of Kevin Drew because of this band. Kevin Drew is definitely good, but not as good as this band when everyone is together. Stars, though, where do they fit into this equation? They are amazing too!!! But, yeah i can see how it would be hard to get together for recordings and concerts when most of the other members are involved in other bands.
hey they didnt break up, they have a few other albums plus some spin off that are title "broken social scene presents: Kevin Drew" and "broken social scene present" Brendan Canning" Both are great albums - as well as all the other projects that other members of BSS do - Jason Collett, Stars, Metric, etc
I think they broke up, honestly. I dunno, though. They haven't release anything since '05 so either they broke up or are just on a hiatus.
I *heart* Brendan Canning.
Everything i've heard from them thus far is incredible. Be prepared for some more of my $$, Amazon!
I wish they'd tour with Animal Collective.
WHY DID THEY CANCEL HARVEST OF HOPE!!!!!!!!
i just heard them and fell right into the grove. BSS paints the mood. rock on. f**k ya, first album rocks.
joelhorton
I wish BSS would cover "Hide" by Dinosaur jr.
saw them a few weeks ago. fantastic.
vocals sound so much like j mascis! Very cool stuff.
AHHHmazing
i'm still your f*g is such a pretty song :)
Going to see them tomorrow at Sunset Junction in LA. Will try to get some vids to share on my YouTube site.
cause = time
jschuhman shut it!
jjustinschul l t z
where are the rest of the ablums?
Why don't they ever play feel good lost?
Between 5 and 10% of the whole population of Canada has been or is now a member of this band. You could look it up, but I wouldn't bother
Wholesome stuff. Delicious sounds
jschuhman
This is a delight. Has a robust flavor, with a sprinkling of Dinosaur Jr, and a heaping tablespoon of Sonic Youth. Enjoy, Children.
