Best known as the sort of de facto captain of indie rock superstars Broken Social Scene, Kevin has just put out his brand new solo album, Aging. In this chat, he and I discuss the album, and its myriad dark, deep, personal themes, as well as what led to its conception and its status as a very piano-led record (which isn’t something we’ve previously associated much with his music). We touch upon Broken Social Scene, and their recent celebration of the 20th anniversary of their landmark record You Forgot it in People. We talk what those songs mean to him now, the music industry at large, and also the staggering glory of Emily Haines and “Anthems for a 17-Year-Old Girl”. It’s a lovely, very candid conversation, and I appreciate the warmth and kindness Kevin brought to our talk. Thank you for listening.
