Its way more fun in a Group

“Feel Good Lost” was released in 2001 as Broken Social Scene‘s debut album.  The instrumental album suits its name perfectly as it does make you feel good getting lost in the tunes.  There was one problem with this, when it came time to play it live it was difficult to create an interesting show with the instrumentals.  

The band pulled together some of their Toronto friends from the Indie music scene to create a more bangin live performance.  The collaberative line-up included Leslie Feist, Amy Milan, from the Stars, and James Shaw, from Metric(to name a few.)  The creative group came back to work on Broken Social Scene‘s second album “You Forgot It In People”, adding lyrics to their already groovy sound. 

Lesson: Sometimes it takes 14 people to get the sound you are looking for.
