It’s been 5 years since their last album, so I couldn’t help myself from pre-ordering the new Broken Social Scene album, Forgiveness Rock Record. I probably would have ordered it anyway, but when their website told me that I’d also get a digital version of Lo-Fi for the Dividing Nights (a bonus 10-track EP) if I preordered. So that’s like getting 2 albums, all for 12 bucks. I can handle that.
Yep, I know it’s a total hipster cliche to like Broken Social Scene. But I really don’t care. I like the music. It’s not my fault that they’re the most uber-cool band this side of Montreal.
