Interesting Broken Social Scene-related news

Quote:

At last, some rock solid news from the notoriously slippery Broken Social Scene camp!

Central Scene figure Kevin Drew will release a solo album of sorts on September 18 via Arts & Crafts. Technically titled Broken Social Scene Presents Kevin Drew, "Spirit If...", the LP was produced by Drew, along with fellow BSSers Ohad Benchetrit and Charles Spearin (both also of Do Make Say Think). It collects Drew-penned tunes recorded at Benchetrit's place intermittently over the past two years.

The disc will feature a bunch of the soundtrack-scoring Broken Social Scene regulars, and a few outsiders as well, which makes it an awful lot like a BSS disc, but not. The tracklist has not yet been finalized. According to the A&C press release, "The record unfolds like an emotional comic book. It's Drew's song-writing and all his favourite topics are addressed: fucking, fighting, fearing and hope. FFFH."

FFFH is just the beginning, however. Spirit If..., as it turns out, is but the first in a planned series of Broken Social Scene Presents releases. Fellow Scene captain Brendan Canning is presently recording the second volume, which should see release in early 2008. Knowing these guys, that probably translates to late 2011.

What's more, Drew, Canning, Justin Peroff, and some new Scene initiates will embark on a "Broken Social Scene Presents" tour this fall to showcase new material from this series. No concrete dates yet, but Stars-struck Scene-ster Amy Millan does have some of her own gigs lined up, as does Apostle of Hustle.
I think this has the potential to be a really fruitful project. It doesn't hurt that I'm starved for BSS news and this seems like a step in the right direction of getting a new album proper. I'll buy pretty much anything on A&C and I'm a big Kevin Drew fan, so I'm looking forward to this.

yep.

it's, um, different?

i'd file it under the 'for completists only' category.

if you've got a hankering for new stars stuff, maybe try out young galaxy.

He takes an awful long time to chew Frosted Flakes and looks like Unemployed Ron Burgundy.
