Not sure that you’ll find me willing to deal with another all day commitment to FYF Fest (last year’s will call line and warm bottled water weren’t the best), but that doesn’t stop the 2011 [Indie-punk centric] line-up from having some great acts that I love. Oddly not happening at Los Angeles Historic State Park, [...]
Texico Bitches have an oddly sexual and deadly oil fight in Broken Social Scene’s latest. You can go say hi to Forgiveness Rock Record, resting comfortably at #14 on my Top 21 Albums of 2010 list.
After 4 years of doing year end Top 10 Album lists, I’ve finally realized how insufficient it is in accurately showcasing my favorites from the year. it’s been a pleasure not having to slim my list down to only 10 records, because that is dumb. 21 seemed like a nice round number that complimented the [...]

The actor and DJ contributed a remix of Broken Social Scene’s “All to All” to the band’s remix series for the Forgiveness Rock Record highlight. Weird, I know, but it’s actually very [...]
Fresh off the release of their latest full length, the slightly disappointing yet still brilliant Forgiveness Rock Record, Broken Social Scene have announced additional North American tour dates after their very festival heavy summer sched. The band will play another set of shows through the fall, ending at LA’s Wiltern on October 19. Special presale [...]
“There’s been a lot of talk about Justin Bieber,” said Kevin Drew dramatically towards the end of Broken Social Scene’s free set in front of an absolutely packed Amoeba Music in Hollywood yesterday. “Maybe too much talk!” The 6 members of the Juno Award winning Canadian indie band (plus occasional 3 piece horn section and [...]
7.5 After a 5 year hiatus and a significant amount of energy poured into various side/solo/other projects during the interim, Broken Social Scene’s Forgiveness Rock Record feels like getting reacquainted with an old friend who has changed slightly since you last spoke. All of the great qualities that remind you why were friends in the [...]

Case and point, Forgiveness Rock Record, the band’s first official release since 2005. Due May 4 on Arts & Crafts. Streaming below via NPR. Playing all [...]
