Kevin Drew Is Impressive

Hands up who likes Broken Social Scene? Who was excited by the news that front man Kevin Drew would be releasing his own album "Broken Social Scene Presents: Kevin Drew Spirit If..." on Arts and Crafts in September? Did you like the sound of the first track released "Tbtf"? I thought it was nice, but not exactly great. Very sweet and charming but not a knock out. Well I can tell you the full album is a knock out. Shiny Records will release the album in Australia on September 15. It does sound like a Broken Social Scene record. But that I believe is a good thing. That means you receive a piece of music that will excite, soothe, delight and astound. It is full of a cavalcade of sumptuous sounds which can be best heard in the stunning opener "Farewell to the Pressure Kids" which cascades like a water fall. Other tracks I like include "Safety Bricks" (has a Feist like feel), the gorgeously languid "Broke Me Up", "Gangbang Suicide" (this is actually very charming), the driving sounds of "Frightening Lives". Hell, it's all good. Isn't 2007 a great year for music?

    Sorry, I was given an exclusive stream from the label. I so was excited by listening to it I just had to write about it. It is definitely worth getting when it is released.
