  • Halo Tora – Broadcast, Glasgow, 8th May 2015
  • Glasgow is well-known and celebrated for its music and arts, and the place is packed with venues of all shapes, sizes and states. Broadcast is one that, until tonight, I have never ventured inside. In fact, I had no idea it even existed until a few months ago. That's the other thing about Glasgow - it is full of surprises, most of them positive, fortunately. Unintentionally turning up a little late, the brilliant Glaswegian four-piece, in:tides - an entirely instrumental band - have already gotten things underway. The first thing you'll notice about Broadcast is the spiral staircase leading down ... make some of the most beautiful music heard in a long while. The downside is that eventually it all jumbles together into one sound, making the vast, immense and bordering-on-epic soundscapes sound as though it's being played under water. A sound this large needs a much bigger space; a venue the size of Broadcast's is doing them no favours whatsoever. Edinburgh's Return To The Sun - another four-piece band quickly take over from in:tides - there's only three hours to cram in three bands before a curfew at 10pm sharpish - the only difference is that this time the band comes with vocals. On the one hand, ... security and stunning everyone all over again. The only thing letting them down is the small space they're playing in - with that wall of sound that can be difficult to hear when layers mash together and come very close to cancelling each other out, serving also to force the drums, the bass and the guitar right through to your stomach and sending it rattling through your ribcage. What is increasingly clear with every performance is that very special things are set to come for Halo Tora and are well on their way to becoming one of Scotland's best-loved bands.

  • Ra, Scott Walker, the ethereal drifting of Angelo Badalamenti and Julie Cruise, and yé-yé gals in full-on art mode; these last few elements reinforce a consistent, skillfully expressed pop inclination. Again, the overall thrust is very much in the tradition of '90s acts such as Stereolab, Pram, and Broadcast, though Death and Vanilla are far from copyists. Their first proper release was a 4-song EP, the self-titled 2010 CD establishing a post-rock/Morricone milieu quite well if a bit less concisely after its expansion to seven tracks on 12-inch vinyl early in '14.

  • BOUQUET: IN A DREAM EP
  • Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs (who you may know from her work with the Norcal folk band the Finches) [and illustrating for L.A. RECORD a whole back--ed.] and experimental composer and sonic artist Max Foreman. Together, they explore the sonic space that hangs between Laurie Anderson and Broadcast, a space consisting mainly of a gentle blend of reverb-y, blissed-out, occasionally deadpan vocals over a pastiche of analog-sounding synths and casiotone drum patterns. Does that mean it's got some melancholy vocals, minimalist arrangements, and cryptic lyrics? Absolutely, but each song is a triumph of selectiveness and conservatism, using a carefully assembled sonic palette to create an other-wordly, retro-futuristic landscape. "Come to Your House" wouldn't seem out of place on Broadcast's masterpiece Tender Buttons, and "Over Mountains" could easily serve as the B-side to Laurie Anderson's famed "O Superman". "In a Dream" drops Riggs' deadpan in harmony with itself over casiotone bongos and distorted guitars; Max's voice is in the mix too, if you listen for it. Even so, there are real songs here, with verses going into bridges and choruses and then to instrumental breaks and back to

  • The Strange Pseudo-Comeback of a Middle-Aged Blur and Their 'Magic Whip'
  • when I thought of traces of the Gorillaz eking into Blur's world. "My Terracotta Heart" has that Everyday Robots vibe, but it's more fully realized for having Albarn's old crew flesh it out. There are hints of the past here too--in the could've-been-born-anywhere cuts "Lonesome Street" and "I Broadcast," both of which harken back to peak-Britpop Blur, but largely The Magic Whip doesn't sound quite like anything they've done. It doesn't attempt to retread hallowed ground, but rather, it's full of diversions and suggested new paths. While Blur first made their name on the kaleidoscopic imagery of ... Magic Whip expands that vision further, to Asia, gazing back at Britain from across the world. But like Everyday Robots and large portions of the Gorillaz discography, Albarn's wonder is mixed with feelings of dislocation in the 21st century. For the handful of endorphin bursts like "Ong Ong" and "I Broadcast," there's sense of cool melancholy threading through songs like "New World Towers" ("Twenty four hours / I glide through the glass arcade to Hollywood / The cycle path it leaves me dreaming of love / Love so far away"). Elsewhere, over anxious strings and a marching snare he sings: "There

  • 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.

  • 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.
