WATCH: Modest Mouse – “The World at Large” (Broken Social Scene Rework)

19 May

As part of The Voice Project, an online cover song series that raises money and awareness for Ugandan women, Broken Social Scene have taken the Modest Mouse track “The World at Large” and reworked it. Broken Social Scene’s singer and co-founder Kevin Drew, who is friends with Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock, said, “I know Isaac, you know, the guys, so I have no desire to cover this song and make it the same.” The rework is a great take on the original song, all the while adding the unique style and talent of each member of BSS. In the clip below (courtesy of TwentyFourBit), you can watch the band’s somewhat impromptu process of reworking the song in-studio.

Also, head over to The Voice Project to see what they’re all about and to support their cause.
