Broken Social Scene Converges

Canadian indie pop big band Broken Social Scene could very easily be the punchline to a joke your alt uncle tells at Thanksgiving or the subject of a Hard Times headline. Instead, it’s a juggernaut, a force to be reckoned with in any self-loathing, introspective millenial’s iTunes library. The collective has been around for 15 years now, losing and gaining musicians, taking breaks and getting back together. All 15 original members reconvened last year (along with three new ones), returning from a seven-year hiatus to release their sixth LP, Hug of Thunder.
