New Apostle Of Hustle – “Perfect Fit”

When the amorphous blob of Canadians that is Broken Social Scene last congregated, Andrew Whiteman was there as always — wearing his winter hat, helping coin the unofficial age of Liz Powell as resident BSSiren on Letterman. In the time since, he’s put the finishing touches on a followup to Apostle Of Hustle’s National Anthem Of Nowhere, one of the brightest in the constellation of BSS side projects. Andrew’s billed the collection as a “a serial poem about some struggles people go through.” Which makes lead track “Perfect Fit” its stoney first stanza, then: settle in for chirping, wooshing, and echoing atmospherics over one long groove and Andrew’s delayed megaphonics. Dank.
