Editors’ Notes

A founding member of Broken Social Scene, where he serves mostly as bass guru (here he plays guitar, keyboards, bass and other instruments), Brendan Canning’s solo outing makes a great pairing with the BSS Presents Kevin Drew release of 2007. They share a dreamy, psych-folk feel at the core, and both artists have a knack for turning out wistful, romantic expressions that feel oddly private. The first three tracks couldn’t be more perfect: “Something” goes from a sleepy guitar stretch to a softly rollicking BSS-style number with blunted shards of guitar and a slightly ominous, catchy chorus; “Chameleon” tumbles along on a ghostly female vocal, French horn, and spacey guitars, before it morphs into a surprisingly meaty tune; “Hit the Wall” is propulsive, shimmering and downright intoxicating. The meandering “All the Best Toys...” and “Been At It So Long” weave horns, synths, acoustic guitars, and strings into pastoral, cinematic constructs, while the surprising “Love is New” translates as updated disco for the times, all plump, acrobatic bass lines and slinky Blondie-style rhythms. The translucent and delicate “Snowballs and Icicles” and “Take Care, Look Up” evoke the quiet and introspective moments of Alex Chilton and Chris Bell. High praise, indeed.

Customer Reviews

BSS Delivers Great Music Again

This album, like all of the other Broken Social Scene albums, delivers the awesome sound of many many instruments being played at the same time with an occasional string or horn in the background. But unlike the BSS I've heard before, in this album the bass really laid the foundation. Compared to BSS Presents Kevin Drew, I liked the melody in this album better but enjoyed Kevin Drew's singing talent more in "Spirit If...". I recommend listening to Broken Social Scene before getting into the "BSS Presents" music.

Brendan Canning at his best

Ingenious, innovative, and grounded in some sort of tangible reality, paired nicely with Spirit If, this guy along with Kevin Drew has been an undiscovered genious for some time now and it's good to have him in the spotlight for once. The dreamy vocals, intense musical emotion, and inspired lyrics should be payed attention to as Something For All of Us captures the true essesnce of Broken Social Scene's musical ability, perhaps one of the best bands of yesterday today and tomorrow.

Its ok.

I wouldn't listen to the people giving this album a 5, that's just the nature of iTunes. This album is ok and that's all it is. Kevin Drew's Spirit If... is MUCH better. This album is a decent listen though. Love Is New and Antique Bull are good songs.
