Broken Social Scenester Jason Collett’s third album Here’s To being Here comes out in February. The Torontonian’s referred to the collection as his “guitar record,” due in part to the larger sound achieved by recording it with touring band Paso Mino as well as getting palette-broadening appearances by BSS/Apostle of Hustle(r) Andrew Whiteman, Liam O’Neil of the Stills and Tony Scherr (Norah Jones, John Scofield). Judging from the first two tracks we’ve heard, dude’s not bluffing.
Countrified. Great how “Charlyn, Angel Of Kensington” claps and struts down the block in the most unhurried way, adding bits to the story before it closes. “Out Of Time” definitely has some Time Out Of Mind intonations. That very satisfying Spoon-y falsetto hook? We can’t stop singing it, and we love that he’s caught a rock bug — if you remember, even that Stars remix he did a ways back was beefed-up with some six string.
Here’s To Being Here is out 2/5 on Arts & Crafts. Collett’s currently on tour with Feist.
