Brendan Canning - “Book It To Fresno” (Arts & Crafts): The co-founder of Broken Social Scene returns to the solo spotlight with upcoming album Home Wrecking Years, out on August 12. A press release describes it as “a vibe-y backyard barbecue-ready indie album. Smart and breezy 4-minute pop tunes that run the gamut from 90s-era college rock to tropical baroque pop.”
This first single and lead track has a wide-screen psychedelic feel driven by Canning’s warm tenor vocals and a propulsive rhythm plus the type of layered production sound BSS fans know and love. Likely the coolest song ever with Fresno in the title!
