THE BIG BEAT Song of the Week: Broken Social Scene – ‘Skyline’

The song of the week is the third single from the forthcoming BSS album. It was an absolute joy to spin on the show this week and it just might be the strongest of the three. They have a show coming up here in Chicago at the Aragon on September 29, so if you wanna see a whole bunch of people on stage having a blast, then you might want to go ahead and look into scoring some tickets here.
