If you are not familiar with Broken Social Scene than you most likely don’t listen to the same type of music as me. The Canadian supergroup includes as few as six and as many as nineteen members with contributions by such artists as Justin Peroff, Charles Spearin, Bill Priddle, Leslie Feist, Jessica Moss and Evan Cranley, Amy Milan, Andrew Whiteman, Jason Collett, and Emily Haines—to name a few. The band’s music features a very large number of sounds, grand orchestrations featuring guitars, horns, woodwinds, and violins, unusual song structures, and an experimental, and sometimes chaotic production style. Since wooing fans and critics alike with their 2003 Juno Award-winning album You Forgot It in People, the band’s popularity has made them such big stars that in 2010, Bruce McDonald made This Movie Is Broken, a film about the band’s Harbourfront show during the 2009 Toronto strike.Their newest video for Sweetest Kill from their latest album Forgiveness Rock Record was just released. Directed by Claire Edmondson, the dark and twisted spot features a ton of blood and stars Bijou Phillips disposing of a dead body.
