By music standards, Broken Social Scene and The Sea and Cake are BFF’s. For one, the two indie rock outfits are longtime collaborators; most recently, The Sea and Cake’s John McEntire produced Forgiveness Rock Record. Plus, the two band are currently touring Canada together. So yeah, the anouncement of a split 7″ isn’t much of a surprise.
The release will be available starting October 26th and will feature a new BSS song called “Curse Your Fail” on side A and a Sea and Cake song titled “Skies” on the flip side. Pre-orders are currently ongoing here. The artwork alone is worth the buy, in my opinion.
Meanwhile, Broken Social Scene also penned a new song for the forthcoming film It’s Kind of a Funny Story. It’s called “Not at My Best” and you can currently stream it at Spinner. The soundtrack is available now via Rhino.
