The Women of Broken Social Scene

David LaChapelle - My House (2001)

Broken Social Scene has produced an entire fleet of female musicians whose talent is being spread broadly upon the music scene through their (often increasingly popular) side projects. Leslie Fiest, Amy Millan, Emily Haines, Lisa Lobsinger, and Julie Penner have all put in their time with the Canadian collective and offshoots Feist, Stars, and Metric have all achieved noteable success. There are no signs of slowing with Feist and Metic agressively touring and Amy Millan releasing a solo album in May. They're an easy color on which to place your next bet.

Sweet post! Never heard of Lisa's stuff before; it sounds great (although it looks like her band has broken up already from the myspace). Now, I'll just have to wait for a "men of bss" post. Thanks!
