Even with Broken Social Scene on indefinite hiatus, it's been an especially busy year for Brendan Canning: he recently revived his long-dormant, pre-BSS indie-pop project Cookie Duster; he composed the soundtrack to Paul Schrader's Lindsay Lohan spectacle, The Canyons (written by Bret Easton Ellis); and he's currently working on an ambitious interactive video-game/film project based on a premise that involves director David Cronenberg selling his intellectual property to a biotech lab.
Amidst all this activity, he still found time to write and record You Gots 2 Chill, providing the clearest, most personal portrait to date of an artist who's spent much of his two-decade career making other people sound better. Back in the '60s, some acoustic-guitar slinging boho from Minnesota extolled the virtues of bringing it all back home—with You Gots 2 Chill, Brendan Canning updates that maxim to 21st-century standards.
Yes, we mean Bob Dylan.
