Newish: Brendan Canning, “Hit The Wall”

Post Author:

The Wu Tang of anthemic indie pop north of the border has another in the pipes in the form of Brendan Canning, “half of BBS' core duo”. Oddly, though Canning only sings three of the songs from Broken Social Scene's entire body of work, you can hear some of Broken Social Scene's tell tale melodic vocal lines in this track. Unlike most BSS tracks, it suffers no breathing room, instead drenching the composition in layers of minor guitar parts.

Much like last year's Kevin Drew album Spirit If, these are songs that will appear in Broken Social Scene's regular live repertoire.
