'World Sick' by Broken Social Scene on Q TV

Sound of the Week

This Canadian indie-rock collaborative has been making music since 2002. Their latest, Forgiveness Rock Record, was released this May. The lead single, World Sick, is lushy and dreamy, reminiscent of 2003's You Forgot It In People.

Fun Facts

  • The band started in Canada in 2002 with two members, Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning. Realizing they would need more members to tour, the band now fluctuates with anywhere from 6 - 19 members at any one time.

  • Before settling on vocalist Lisa Lobsinger in 2005, the band featured Emily Haines (Metric), and Leslie Feist (Feist).

  • Many of their songs feature horns, woodwinds, and violins.

  • Their 3rd studio album, You Forgot It In People, won the 2003 Juno (Canadian Grammys) for Best Alternative Album.
