My 25 Favorite Artists of the 2000s - #8

#8 - Broken Social Scene

The 2000s saw a much higher percentage of great music coming out of Canada than any decade in music history. At the center of all of this was the large musical collective known as Broken Social Scene. Formed by Kevin Drew (of the band KC Accidental) and Brendan Canning, BSS helped launch and/or solidify the careers of many indie rock luminaries of the decade, including Leslie Feist, Emily Haines of Metric, all of the members of Stars, and members of the band Do Make Say and Apostle of Hustle among others. Broken Social Scene's music itself is pretty much what you'd expect from such a large collective of musicians, as they tend to jump from style to style, all the while doing so in a manner that seems almost effortless. They are definitely one of Canada's greatest gifts to the musical landscape.

My Favorite Albums:
1. You Forgot It In People (2002)
2. Broken Social Scene (2005)
3. Feel Good Lost (2001)
