Canadian collective contribute to year-in-review album
The indie-rock heroes Broken Social Scene have been on something of a hiatus for years at this stage, but today have shared a new song.
OK, we're sort of twisting the truth, here; it's not actually new, so to speak, but rather an off-cut dating back to 2010's Forgiveness Rock Record. It is, however, the first time the song has been shared, so we'll take what we can get!
'Golden Facelift' is part of Broadsheet Music: A Year In Review, which has aimed to curate tracks to reflect 2014's biggest stories and events. Just how a song from four years ago is involved, we have no idea, but we're not complaining!

They say less is more. Obviously ‘they’ hadn’t seen Broken Social Scene. I quickly ran out of fingers trying to count exactly how many individuals comprise this rampaging Canadian horde. But, hey, let’s not worry about quantifying the experience, it’s the quality that counts, right?Read More
Toronto supergroup Broken Social Scene have been christened this year’s Arcade Fire. No wonder they look so worried.Read More

A dark, dank melancholy drifts over Broken Social Scene, the latest in an unfortunate series of Canadian bands lumbered with the ‘new Arcade Fire’ tag. In truth, the Toronto group traffic in sounds far stranger and more otherworldly than that of their Montreal compatriots.Read More
