Something for All of Us
Brendan Canning's first solo effort- \and the second release in the Broken Social Scene Presents series (Kevin Drew's Spirit If, being the first). Canning is a prolific songwriter and founding member of the indie rock collective. The new album, aptly titled, SOMETHING FOR ALL OF US, is a truly genre- ambiguous, progressive work. Canning finds himself free to experiment with a variety of sounds- from hushed lo-fi acoustics, to blazing rock'n'roll, to psychedelic groove. Recorded and produced in Toronto by Canning along with Ryan Kondrat and John La Magna, the album features an assortment of guest musicians. Naturally, fellow BSS band-mates make up a large portion of the accompaniment, as well, contributions from Kevin Hearn (BNL, Lou Reed), Liz Powell (Land of Talk) and Liam O'Neil (The Stills).
