Tour: The Broken West

After a strong EP debut, the Broken West have high hopes for their newly released album I Can’t Go On, I’ll Go On.

From their label, Merge Records: Their debut is a power-pop gem, shimmering and cool, with sharp edges and soaring melodies. The record deals with eternal themes of isolation, distance, and the longing for a center—a sense of place—in this topsy-turvy world. The Kinks, Big Star, and The Byrds, as well as more contemporary favorites like Spoon, Wilco, and Teenage Fanclub are certainly touchstones, but The Broken West’s winning songs stand on their own.
