Also she joined in Broken Social Scene's upcoming new album "Hug of Thunder", which will be released in July 7.
The new album is like a studio live album, she told Pitchfork about the LP;
"It’s because the songs were recorded pretty much live. And it felt in keeping with the whole experiment of investing in imperfection. It’s funny. A lot of my guy friends will know how to intend for something to sound like that Beach Boys album, or that year, or that recording studio, where they’re retro-fitting these production qualities. But for me, it can’t just be sonic. If there’s backup singing, I’m like, “Who are they and why are they there?” I get really narrative about it, really literary. So when it became clear to me that the hiss was embedded everywhere, I was like, “All right, it belongs in this play’s cast of characters."
