Stream: KC Accidental - Captured Anthems for an Empty Bathtub/Anthems for the Could've Bin Pills

KC Accidental was the pre-Broken Social Scene project of Kevin Drew and Charles Spearin (also of Do Make Say Think). This is a re-release of their two albums combined on one disc. It's all instrumental, and if you're a fan of BSS' excellent debut Feel Good Lost you should dig this, in particular the amazing, desolate-sounding 'Tired Hands', the equal of anything they would go on to create. Having said that, there's also post-rock fuzziness ahoy to go along with the more ambient soundscapes.

The whole record is streaming over at, where you can also find streams of Bruce Springsteen's The Promise and the impressive Sports from newcomers Weekend.

Speaking of BSS-related stuff, Charles Spearin's The Happiness Project is well worth checking out if you haven't yet: released last year, it's essentially speech and spoken word set to music, but it's really well done, particularly here:
