Their single "Echoes of Songs (For Trish Keenan)" is a serenely shimmering and touching tribute inspired by the works and untimely death of Broadcast member Trish Keenan, who passed away in 2011. In just under four and a half minutes the band submerges you in an empyrean assembly of light synths and meticulously routed guitars wrapped up in gossamery atmospherics that may just leave you speechless and breathless when you finally emerge from it.

  • The Essential… Broadcast
  • From the start of their near 20-year career, psychedelic pop adventurers Broadcast always stood in a class of their own. Formed in Birmingham, England in 1995 by James Cargill and Trish Keenan, Broadcast were a band that fused the worlds of pop songcraft and experimentally-minded electronic music into a contemporary blend of psychedelia that resonated deeply with listeners, effectively expanding the conventions of what could be considered psychedelic. After a trio of arresting singles for small indies like Wurlitzer Jukebox and the Stereolab-helmed Duophonic UHF Discs, they signed ... Warp Records, where they remained for the rest of their career. The band's signing to Warp was, at the time, a surprising and somewhat controversial move for the label, as its catalogue at that point dealt almost exclusively with acts outside of the world of pop music. Over time though, Broadcast became one of the label's most revered and beloved cult acts, attracting a fan-base that continues to grow. Cargill and Keenan assembled the band with guitarist Tim Felton, keyboardist Roj Stevens and drummer Steve Perkins after hearing cult 1960s psych band The United States Of America during a night out ... and popular is rubbish without avant-garde." This was a credo to which Keenan and Cargill held steadfastly throughout the band's tenure, always eager to incorporate new influences as a means of paying tribute and sharing their love for such cultural touchstones. With hindsight, Broadcast's discography follows a clear route away from the fashionable swagger and lad-centric posturing of Britpop's halcyon days into the crate-digging multiculturalism embraced by hip-hop and dance music producers. This sound would become a cornerstone of postmodern pop songwriting, and the fact they were one of the first bands of the era to attempt to shift that axis into a more rock/pop format is often overlooked (it's worth noting that the first American label to sign the band was legendary hip hop outpost Tommy Boy). At the time of their inception, Broadcast were often lazily compared to Stereolab, Portishead and the post-rock movement of the time. The references to Stereolab, one of the few bands with live instrumentation to incorporate esoteric influences and retro-futurist tendencies, are sensible to a point. In retrospect, though, it makes more sense to consider groups like Saint Etienne,

  • 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."

The Duke of Burgundy should arrive in cinemas by the end of the year, with the album out shortly after.

As youth culture rose to prominence during the 60s, the smooth sounds of Muzak Holdings vague background music slid in favor of original artist programming. For the life of me, I can't remember ever hearing muzak in an elevator (which may be the entire point) nor do I suspect can the members of Broadcast.

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...

There was certainly a decent amount of other work that sprung up in the gaps between those records, but often a protracted silence would settle on the band...

Broadcast's contribution to the Peter Strickland film Berberian Sound Studio functions more as a museum of grotesque curiosities, as befits the corresponding thematic content. The film, set in an Italian horror film studio during the '70s, can be most appropriately described as a meta-horror, in that it blurs the line between fiction and a horrible reality...

  • This soundtrack to Peter Strickland's Berberian Sound Studio is the last record by Broadcast, purveyors of icy-sharp electronica: singer Trish Keenan died unexpectedly in 2011. 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.
