  • Warp announces reissues of long out of print Broadcast discography
  • The band's four albums and two singles compilations will be given long overdue reissue treatment this September. Though many expected a brutally sad ending to the loved Warp mainstay Broadcast after frontwoman Trish Keenan's death in 2011, her musical partner James Cargill has continued the project in small ways. There has been the haunting score to Berbarian Sound Studio (which placed high on our list of the greatest horror movie soundtracks) and his current score for the upcoming Duke Of Burgundy, not to mention the murmurs of one final album made with Keenan that may see the light of day. The audience for the band has grown, but their out of print back catalog has remained elusive, with some of their records reaching hundreds of dollars on sites like Discogs. That changes this year. Warp has announced plans to reissue the entire Broadcast discography including their four original albums: 2000′s The Noise Made By People, 2003′s Haha Sound, 2005′s Tender Buttons, and finally 2009′s Broadcast and the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults Of The Radio Age. In addition to those they will also release 1997′s Work And Non Work, which compiled all their early singles and EPs as well as 2006′s odds and sods double album, The Future Crayon. The reissues are due September 3 via Warp, which is still quite a ways off, but very fitting for a band that was basically the embodiment of the word "autumnal." Head to Warp's site for more details and revisit their classic 1999 single 'Echo's Answer' below. Warp announces reissues of long out of print Broadcast discography

I'll be doing a live set that night as well. Who would be your dream release on the label? Oh man... hahah. This is so difficult. Vangelis would be next level obviously. Maybe a Richard D.

That's purposeful: "Echoes Of Songs" is a tribute to the late Trish Keenan of the great cosmopolitan experimentalists Broadcast. The trio has conjured something close to Broadcast's signature sound without abandoning their own, flushing out the floaty, futuristic soundscape with the softhewn harmonies that are Simian Ghost's greatest strength. Director Victor Claeson's pristine black and white performance video matches the Broadcast aesthetic too, so this thing looks, feels, and sounds like a proper tribute.

  • Berberian Sound Studio was one of the finest films of 2012. Released on a limited cinematic run last summer, it's a psychological thriller/horror affair starring Toby Jones as a sound effects specialist who begins work in an Italian horror film studio on an amazingly titled (if slightly worrying) film called The Equestrian Vortex. And he soon starts to go a bit mad. So far, so , you may think. And you'd be right...

Its 39 short tracks are populated by whispers, screams and monkey-like gibbering. There are ominous synth washes, grating distortion, portentous organ, as well as flutes. All very sinister, but short on anything approaching a tune. As a soundtrack, sure; as a record, one for the completist.
