I shouldn't have to tell you guys who Broken Social Scene. But even today I was surprised by some people not having a clue.
Broken Social Scene is one of Toronto's premier indie music makers. Forming in 1999 the band's original core members were Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning. The first album, Feel Good Lost, was rich with ambient vibes and dreamscape melodies.
After gaining some notoreity the band took on other members of the Toronto indie scene, including Metric's Emily Haines, Jason Collett, Andrew Whiteman, and the ever amazing Leslie Feist (Feist). Through the years a number of Canadian musicians has been listed as band members, such as K-OS, Jason Tait, Lisa Lobsinger, Stars' Amy Millan, and countless others.
In reality Broken Social Scene can be viewed as a collective of Canadian, specifically Toronto musicians, collaborating to give a melodic overview of Canadian new music. Rich in it's variety, and full of moving and beautiful tunes, BSS is definately something you should listen.
