Boomkat Product Review:
Broken Social Scene is turning into something of a hotbed of pure solo talent lately, what with the stunning album from Feist (which is for me one of the finest this year) and then now this first in a series of solo releases from Kevin Drew. There's a lot of members in Broken Social Scene too, like most big Canadian outfits, they make odd pop music that relies on countless musicians to make it happen (cough, Arcade Fire, cough) but if all of the albums are this good then who's complaining? Taking the tried and tested BSS formula and roping in most of the members to help him along (that's why it's called 'Broken Social Scene Presents.') Ayers pieces together fourteen quite unfathomably beautiful indie micro-hits, the sort of tracks that keeps sites like Pitchfork living and breathing. The album's high point for me is 'TBTF' (translation - too beautiful to f*ck) which is as simple as a modern indie/electronic track can be, evoking comparisons with the Postal Service if they had employed a rabble of talented instrumentalists. Expansive and forward facing, here's to more solo albums!
