Featured Release: Broken Social Scene – “Hug of Thunder”

Hug Of Thunder

Genre: Indie Rock/Experimental // Label: Arts & Crafts

Background:

After a seven year layover, Broken Social Scene has returned with all fifteen of its original members.  Hug of Thunder marks the follow-up to 2010’s Forgiveness Rock Record, as the band reunites for what Kevin Drew summarized as “…since we’re an anthemic band, we wanted to bring the celebration…It was important for all of us to come together because it’s the only thing we can politically do at this moment in time.”  To date, four songs from the record have been officially released, but you can now also stream the whole album via NPR [see below link].

Stream the entire record, or check out the lead single “Halfway Home” below:

Slower week, but I'll definitely be checking out Broken Social Scene and Offa Rex (Decemberists side project). Will probably also give HAIM a chance.

As uninspiring as you can get - hopefully Kev Drew still has a few good tunes up his sleeve but BSS records can sure be bland

What, a new M.O.D. record? That's awesome! Really looking forward to it. Also enjoyed the new Mr. Big single, the album will be solid for sure. Def a great week for me :]

Post-rock band I/O is also releasing their new album this week. That, and Broken Social Scene, are the only things that interest me this Friday.

Why does the Blind Guardian album listen Agent Bla as the name??

Great question. I must've accidentally copypasta'd the wrong image in my mindless fulfilling of the routine. Fixed it now, thanks.
