Canadian indie rock band Broken Social Scene recently performed their rendition of Modest Mouse’s hit 2004 song “The World at Large.” They did it in conjunction with The Voice Project, which is a non-profit that raises money for women in war-ravaged Northern Uganda. The Voice Project works by getting artists to cover other artists songs and continuing one long chain of covers. The artists thus spread the word about the non-profit and advertisers, sponsors, and individuals donate on their site.
The video gives a glimpse into what it’s like to be Broken Social Scene when they’re working in the studio. They definitely put their trademark sound into the Modest Mouse classic. I love the way they can seemingly just mess around on their instruments and create they perfect melody.
