Editors’ Notes The shape-shifting indie rock collective Broken Social Scene has never been much for understatement—even the band’s interludes feel like they’re about to burst into confetti. Featuring all 15 original members (including a standout performance by Feist on the title track), Hug of Thunder is, well, just that: rumbling, uplifting and all-encompassing, from the silvery ambience of “Sol Luna” to the climactic “Mouth Guards of the Apocalypse,” where founder Kevin Drew wails, “I'm trying for the living, and I'm staying so I can leave.”
