Hug of Thunder is the fifth studio album by Canadian indie rock musical collective Broken Social Scene. It was released by the Arts & Crafts record label on July 7, 2017. After declaring a hiatus in September 2011, Broken Social Scene performed at the Field Trip Arts & Crafts Music Festival in 2013 and a couple of festivals in 2015, the latter of which prompted band members Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Charles Spearin, Justin Peroff, and Andrew Whiteman to discuss recording new material.
Broken Social Scene are defined by a kind of utopian collectivism, and the lead-up to Hug of Thunder confirms that their excessive generosity can make them a seriously inefficient singles band. But in the same way that the members of Broken Social Scene renounce their star power to present a unified front, the individual songs of Hug of Thunder are best understood as reciprocal parts of a whole. More so than Forgiveness Rock Record, Hug of Thunder presents Broken Social Scene as a rock band making rock songs, a coherent montage rather than a patched-together highlight reel. Any sort of industry leveling-up is probably out of the question at this point for Broken Social Scene and the possibility that they’re going for hits is entirely theoretical.
Broken Social Scene, Hug Of Thunder. Courtesy of the artist. Before taking a break of seven years from releasing albums, Broken Social Scene established itself as one of indie rock's most epic practitioners. Later on, the album's celestial title track erupts into a typically majestic chorus, complete with lit-major attention to storytelling and symbolic detail, led by Broken Social Scene breakout star Leslie Feist who pulls off a Kate Bush-level of otherworldliness. When it comes to a mix of ethereality and strength, new vocalist Ariel Engle is no slouch. A member of the offshoot AroarA with Broken Social Scene's Andrew Whiteman, she lends piercing elation to "Stay Happy," a burst of symphonic pop with a massive yet laid-back beat.

Featuring all 15 original members (including a standout performance by Feist on the title track), Hug of Thunder is, well, just that: rumbling, uplifting and all-encompassing, from the silvery ambience of Sol Luna to the climactic Mouth Guards of the Apocalypse, where founder Kevin Drew wails, I'm trying for the living, and I'm staying so I can leave.

Somewhere between a band and a concept, the Canadian group Broken Social Scene has persisted both grandly and modestly since 1999. It’s grand in sound and personnel, with 15 participants on its new album, Hug of Thunder ; it’s modest in constructing its music collectively, even though it’s packed with individualistic songwriters. The collaborators on Hug of Thunder, the band’s first album since 2010, have grown up together and, by now, have also built their own careers, yet they still work on Broken Social Scene.
