After listening to them on and off for the past couple of years, I've finally fallen in love with anything and everything that is Broken Social Scene. Now, I am wondering where to go from here. I got a lot of recommendations for Kevin Drew's "Spirit If..." which seemed kind of obvious. However, I was wondering about the not so obvious things to acquire.

Find the album they did for some movie (or something, I don't remember, but I know I found it in the old MF thread) titled Lo-Fi for the Dividing Nights

Lo-Fi is just a series of alt recordings that didn't make it onto Forgiveness Rock Record. Still worth checking out though!

Seconding the KC Accidental dig. Also would strongly recommend Rah Rah, who are like a humble small-town version of that band I guess!

Woah really? That's cool. I have the Polymaths record lying on my computer waiting for a proper listen. I listened to it a while ago, but I wasn't really paying attention at the moment.

I was trying to find the EP a few months ago and found the LP. Then just a few minutes ago I was poking through the MF thread and found the EP.

actually I came into some of the rarer early EPs (early EP+2 release & ten rapids) that I really need to upload. Helicon 2 is far and away one of the best instrumental things ever made.

fun fact: johnny c did some of the backing vocals for some of the tracks on rah rah's "going steady".

Also on the sadly departed Polymaths record.

since you're all incredibly desperate for it, here's a list of my credits:
  • these estates (obvs)  guitar & vox
  • architects & builders (mostly on crater, the title track of which i wrote the lyrics for) guitar, bass, drums, vox, occasionally keyboards played through a guitar pickup (live only)
  • gravity kills children  drums, arranging
  • polymaths  [deep breath] background vocals on "strike" (so long, castle road EP), guitar solos on several tracks on home again (except "unreliable", the best solo on the record probably), backing vocals on "letters from home" and guitar/bass in the last live incarnation of the band
  • rah rah  mandolin on "my guarantee" and backing vocals on "duet for emmylou and the greivous angel" and i think that's it?
  • "marshall burns & the heat" (a pickup band playing non-rah rah MB songs, only one record, technically i'm not supposed to have a copy but i do)  bass, some guitars, mandolin, backing vox, arrangement

the only one of those i'm not really sold on is the last one  the record isn't mixed very well and all the vocals sound like super weird on it, too. there's several instances where i'm audibly shouting but i'm buried in the distance on the left channel and there's a really close-sounding female vocal over top of it. it's disorienting.

i love being a hired gun, though. i wish i was asked more often.

Los Campesinos are awesome. Also, is it just me, or does every band on Arts & Crafts sound like BSS? I know Kevin Drew or someone in the band owns the label, but still. And they don't sound like them in a good way.

The last five tracks off of Romance is Boring... are indescribably awesome. Like, if they put out just those songs as an EP, that EP still would have topped my list of things released in 2010. Absolutely incredible.
