Broken Social Scene - Forced to Love

videoYou can hear Broken Social Scene's new album, Forgiveness Rock Record, in its entirety at NPR. I like how they opened their article about BSS.

It's hard to deny the influence of Toronto's expansive independent music community. As a vital part of the last decade's Canadian rock explosion, Toronto has been an incubator for the likes of Feist, Jason Collett, Stars and Metric; in the process, it's become a part of indie-rock folklore. At its center is Broken Social Scene, which functions as the connective tissue for a sprawling array of satellite acts.

Broken Social Scene performed "Forced to Love" on Letterman the other day. Check it out.

All our "great exports" could fit on a bus an a half headed to the UK.

I do like BSS though.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

OJ Boy,

Are you comparing the UK to the City of Toronto?

Population of the UK: 61,414,062
Population of Toronto: 2,480,000

Pound for pound, I'd argue we're pretty awesome.
