New Broken Social Scene Album > New Radiohead Album

Posted in Downloads, Music News with tags , , , , , , , on Monday, May 18, 2009 by Erik Burg

BSS group      Prepare to hype or hate. It’s that time once again to praise some of the world’s best selling artists for follow up albums. Canadian super group Broken Social Scene are finally recording a following up to their self-titled third album, full band and all. Radiohead are also quick to start recording the follow up to their hugely successful 2007 album In Rainbows.

      Which one am I more excited for? Go ahead and reference the title of this column for the answer to that one. Radiohead is good and all (sort of) but the coordination and complication that comes with Broken Social Scene recording a full band album makes their news all that much more exciting than lame Thom Yorke and co. recording some stuff. 

Here are the official words from each camp on the recording of the albums:

Radiohead -“It’s at the stage where we’ve got the big Lego box out and we’ve tipped it out on the floor and we’re just looking at all the bits and thinking what’s next?…It was very noisy and chaotic and really fun.”  via Bassist Colin Greenwood.

Broken Social Scene -“I can’t tell you what this record will sound like, who from the other great bands will be involved, but I can tell you it feels amazing to be in Chicago recording.” Guitarist/everything man Kevin Drew.

      Radiohead is recording with their longtime producer Nigel Godrich. Broken Social Scene is recording with mastermind John McEntire, of Tortoise and Sea and Cake fame. I guess I’ll really be a dick about it when both sure-to-be-amazing albums hit the shelves.radiohead Until then, enjoy these tracks!

Broken Social Scene Cover “Love Will Tear Us Apart” for Upcoming Movie

The ever-changing and always satisfying Broken Social Scene will make their big screen debut this summer in the movie The Time Traveler’s Wife. Both Brendan Canning and Kevin Drew will be paired up with Justin Peroff and Andrew Whiteman who will play a wedding band in the film.

The boys apparently cover Joy Division’s amazing, yet slightly ironic as a wedding tune, “Love Will Tear Us Apart.” I’m beyond excited to hear this cut, and it might actually propel me to see a movie in theaters (Last one I saw was the Dark Knight I think). Broken Social Scene has never let me down, and hearing them cover one of my favorite singles of all-time is a great prospect, simply put: amazing.
