bijou phillips took some time off from playing hyper-sexual but emotionally battered women to star as a hyper-sexual wine swilling axe murderer in broken social scene’s new video for “sweetest kill” from their album forgiveness rock record.
how about a crude-oil soaked wrestling match between two logo emblazoned bros to get your anti-oil message out? broken social scene sure think there’s something to that idea, i their new video for “texico bitches” from forgiveness rock record.
the band has also added 10 “special” dates to their ongoing tour in support of the album, which can be viewed after the jump.
longtime broken social scenester leslie feist popped her pretty little head in at toronto’s sound academy to perform her 2007 track from the reminder, “i feel it all” with the kevin drew company. the cute part, all feistiness aside? she let’s the crowd sing that little vocal run in the bridge before her patented feist yelp.
the former death from above 1979 member with the less creepy mustache has remixed bss’s “all to all”, the first of seven remixes of the song that are set to debut each monday over the next seven weeks. enjoy.
not content to watch a broken social scene concert from the predetermined visual angles? then have your editing hand at pitchfork’s new “pov series” in which the camera angles and focus are up to you. choose from one of six different shots or watch all six at once. the choice is yours and yours alone! good luck!
distraught over the current state of the world? so is kevin drew and the rest of broken social scene. this band-approved fan made video for “meet me in the basement” showcases the recent riots of toronto’s g20 summit, oil spills, and random acts of violence peppered with bits of pop culture consumerist icons. it’s all very overwhelming and in the words of kevin drew himself: “i don’t wanna be a total skeptic, but right now it’s just a little troublesome.”
the always topical and raucous broken social scene hit up fallon last night to perform forgiveness rock record cut, “texico bitches.” and as an added bonus, aside from cedric the entertainer playing air-guitar, the band outro’d with “meet me in the basement.”
those canadians are always so polite. saying sorry when you bump into them. offering the occasional doughnut or cigarette. streaming the new broken social scene album in its entirety over on npr. let’s all just move there and be better people, okay?
fresh of of performing at this year’s sxsw, with emily haines in tow, the scenesters premier two more tracks from their forthcoming album forgiveness rock record. and they packaged them into this little nifty media player, which you can find below the cut. canadians really are the nicest people around!
when last i saw bss, they were playing one of their last shows of 2009 at houston’s free press summerfest and breaking up fights (unlike this girl). now they’re back with a new song from their upcoming album, forgiveness rock record, and the album artwork to boot. check that and their upcoming tour dates after the jump.
