Kevin Drew – “Good Sex”

Kevin Drew - Good Sex
I’ve written about Kevin Drew‘s new solo single, “Good Sex,” a couple of times for Exclaim!, and I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit. I wasn’t a big fan of Broken Social Scene‘s last couple of albums, but this song taps into the brilliance of You Forgot It in People, which is definitely promising for the upcoming Darlings.

Amy Millan breaks up the Broken Social Sausage Fest
Broken Social Scene‘s You Forgot It in People was a monumental album, but its near-mythical status in the world of Canadian indie rock means that anything the band releases will be met with impossibly high expectations.

Try to forget about whether or not Forgiveness Rock Record lives up to You Forgot It in People‘s legacy. It’s an hour-long opus that manages to be sweepingly ambitious without coming off as pompous or self-important. Here’s the opening track, “Wold Sick,” which simmers and builds for almost seven minutes without ever quite exploding like you think it’s going to. If you’ve listened to the album, you already know that the big payoff comes later (“Meet Me in the Basement,” am I right?).
