Brendan Canning – “Book It To Fresno” (Stereogum Premiere)

In August, Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning will release his third solo album Home Wrecking Years, his first since 2013’s You Gots 2 Chill. In addition to Canning, the album features fellow Broken Social Scene members Sam Goldberg and Justin Peroff, as well as the Stills/Kings Of Leon’s Liam O’Neil.
