Song of the Day: Broken Social Scene - World Sick (MP3)
Broken Social Scene’s debut album, Feel Good Lost, was an atmospheric 2-piece featuring Brendan Canning and Kevin Drew, and although they put out some interesting tracks it was only until they swelled into an 11-piece manifesto of Toronto’s indie rock community and became the Canadian Juno-Award winning supergroup including Metric’s Emily Haines, and Do Make Say Think’s Charles Spearin. And while they may not have the name recognition as the Traveling Wilburys or even Monsters of Folk, Broken Social Scene have the staying power needed to be more than just another supergroup. With as many as 23 musicians in the collective’s roster, and such a liquid mentality, they wont be held back.
Only a taste of the new album courtesy of Broken Social Scene’s website including the tracks, "Forced to Love," "All to All," and today’s song, "World Sick," is enough to stir up some buzz and excitement for the mega-group’s first album in five years. After stepping away from the group mentality, BSS’s Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning having both released solo albums under Arts and Crafts and with the Broken Social Scene flag still flying high, they have reconvened as Broken Social Scene to create Forgiveness Rock Record, released May 4th on Arts and Crafts. The follow up to these solo endeavors, the Broken Social Scene is back together as a whole. The whole lot of them. [via]
It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com.
I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed.
Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
