If one had to sit down and make a list about the things we're crazy-excited about this spring, Broken Social Scene's new record would be pretty damn close to (if not at the top of) the list. As such, we were more than a little excited that the band has released two more tracks from the forthcoming Forgiveness Rock Record, "Forced To Love" and "All To All", as a double A-Side single.

The first track is a straight-ahead rocker with crashing drums in the classic BSS vein of "Fire Eye'd Boy". The second brings in the ladies on vocals, and underlays it with a electro beat that takes the vibe of "Swimmers" one step further. Put differently, this is shaping up to be exactly the full-band delivery we had been hoping for, and we couldn't be happier!
Broken Social Scene is at Webster Hall 5/7 and in Central Park 9/18.
