So yeah, there's a chance I may see BSS again this weekend. Kewl.
I was going to head to that festival in Houston this weekend (and also to see a friend). I am sorta kicking myself. Hope you get to see them.

Any time you can avoid Houston, you do it.

New BSS LP in May, woot!

Pitchfork: Kevin Drew Reveals All About New Broken Social Scene Album

From the interview:

This is a crazy state of limbo right now and we tried to embrace it and bring those subjects up here and there. We've always been a band that sings about exactly what's inside of us and exactly what's happening outside as well. Like, if we're screaming, let's have something to scream about.

I think even Boner missed the overall point of getting yer boots on.

Hopefully it's considerably better than the "featuring" albums.

Ahhhh shit. Other than the next THE NASH! album, this might be my most anticipated now. Absolutely great news.

And what are you talking about, Scums? The Presents albums were awesome.

To my ears they had like 2 or 3 songs each that were "good", nothing "great", and the rest was all pretty much filler. They weren't bad by any means, but they really didn't live up to the Broken Social Scene name for me.

On a side note, it's crazy how fast the whole Canadian indie invasion scene died.

I can see the Canning album suffering from the two or three good songs thing for some people, but KD's was pretty great front to back. In any case, understandable sentiment there.

It's admittedly been a year or two since I last listened to it, maybe I'll have to give it another spin this week.

So, I found out that one of my professors is good friends with Julie Penner of BSS (and Do Make Say Think). Fucking awesomeness.

Only had a chance to listen to it once while I was getting ready for work this morning, but I like what I heard quite a bit.
