Broken Social Scene - Cause=Time

 In the late 1990s, broken social scene linchpins Kevin Drew and Charles Spearin met at Toronto's Harris Institute for the Arts. "Kevin came up to me and said, 'You look like a guy who likes Tortoise,'" Spearin recounts in Pitchfork contributor Stuart Berman's BSS oral history This Book Is Broken. "Tortoise was the icebreaker." Fast forward more than a decade and the two musical soul mates are sitting in a big, empty room in Austin's Driskill Hotel, a mere wall away from SXSW's numbing hubbub. They're talking to me about their new album, Forgiveness Rock Record, produced by Tortoise mastermind John McEntire.
