Live Video of the Week: Broken Social Scene at CMJ

From last October during KEXP’s broadcast at Gibson Showroom during CMJ, the main members of Broken Social Scene gathered for a laid-back, practically impromptu set, featuring songs helmed by a few of the multiple songwriters: Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew, and Andrew Whiteman, joined by drummer Justin Peroff and multi-instrumentalist Charles Spearin. Two of the songs came from Brendan’s recent album, Something For All Of Us…, namely “Hit the Wall” and “Love Is New.” The rest of the songs were so new that one of them didn’t even have a title yet. Here are three songs from the session. You can download a fourth when you subscribe to the KEXP Video Podcast.
