Word Sick

Broken Social Scene is already performing songs from their as-yet-unreleased album at their live shows, which is pretty awesome. "Word Sick" is likely going to be their first single, which makes sense, because its awesome.

Scattered thoughts:

-That bass guitar is big and phallic enough to make Derek Smalls jealous.

-At the start of the video, Broken Social Scene thanks their opening act, The Apostles of Hustle. In March of 2005 I saw The Apostles of Hustle open for The Stars at The Catacombs in Madison, Wisconsin, and they were great - my friends and I kept waiting for their break-out album, which never really happened, but its good to see that they're still out there making music.

-Broken Social Scene has always been a collective, with two or three core members and a group of rotating sidemen and contributors. The core guys sound great (as always), but I hope they find a way to keep their trio of lovely and talented contributors, Leslie Feist, Emily Haines and Amy Millan, involved with the band as they continue to find success in their primary careers.
