newbie love [122707 @ 737a]

[ mood | quixotic ]

I love Broadcast because their music always takes me to a different place: the '60s, the '80s, the green sands of a Venusian beach, and some kind of early '60s representation of what 'the future' would sound like. Not exactly space age bachelor pad music, but close. Not to mention, I love Trish's hair. With those side-parted bangs and a long trenchcoat, she's the epitome of cool in my book. I've seen them live once, years ago as the opening band for someone else... I can't remember who. The seed was planted then. I wish they'd come back to my city and play again. Until then, I'll continue to listen to their music in my little Honda as I drive up the Southern California coast, pretending I'm driving my Italian roadster on the French Riviera with a chiffon scarf in my hair. Ahhh....

     I used to drive around downtown listening to Haha Sound in my Nissan 300ZX. My friend Ronnie would always ride with me, because I would give him codeine - of course, I would take some, too. Only in the summertime, and the t-tops would be in the trunk so I could look through the roof of my car, high as hell, watching my car drive itself in some sort of uncontrollable third-person view. Or maybe it was the view from the car, if you were the car. Codeine and Broadcast, and warm weather, and cloudless skies, and people; people everywhere! Walking and chatting, enjoying the way things were - temporarily beautiful and abstract. Life in '20s deco. Life with a touch of wet pastels, and I miss it. I miss it so much.

     So why do you like Broadcast?

hey everyone!

my name is li, i'm new here. i'm from Brooklyn, NY. i have loved Broadcast so much, for as long as i can remember, but i think i got into them around the age of 15 or 16. i think.
is anyone else freaking out about how perfect Future Crayon is? i ordered a copy on CD and vinyl from the Warpmart and got two post cards to send back to the UK to contribute to the lets-write-a-song project. perhaps my boyfriend will use the other one!

hope everyone is well!

from pitchfork media:

New Broadcast Album and Tour!

David Nadelle reports:
It's been a stormy two years since Broadcast last, um, broadcast, but September 20 (a day earlier outside the U.S.) will see the band's next step in their quest for the perfect vibe when they release the new album Tender Buttons. The album's named after a Gertrude Stein book, whose influence on Broadcast apparently doesn't end there; the song title "Michael A Grammar" is presumably a reference to another Stein piece called "Arthur A Grammar", though we'll take a pass on guessing what all this means.

As is often the case with Broadcast, the recording process between albums was unorthodox. Past albums have been plagued by departing band members and producers; this time, the band have been reduced to two members, singer Trish Keenan and partner James Cargill. It seems that the band's line-up isn't the only thing that has been pared down-- according to Warp Records, the arrangements are decidedly more minimal, and the live Broadcast drum sound has been replaced by soft and sparse electronic drum beats. Warp will precede the album with a 7" single on August 8 which will couple two album tracks, "America's Boy" and "Tender Buttons". Tracklist:

01 I Found the F
02 Black Cat
03 Tender Buttons
04 America's Boy
05 Tears in the Typing Pool
06 Corporeal
07 Bit 35
08 Arc of a Journey
09 Michael A Grammar
10 Subject to the Ladder
11 Evil Is Coming
12 Goodbye Girls
13 You and Me in Time
14 I Found the End

The band will embark on a North American tour to coincide with the release of Tender Buttons. Details of support acts on this tour as well as upcoming UK and European tours are due to be announced shortly.

[052205 @ 939a]

first broadcast song you heard? when?

first: "echo's answer" but i'm not sure of when. i do remember, however, after playing the song, my mother came in & asked "did you just hear church bells?"
favorite: "pendulum;" it makes me feel like i'm in a spy movie circa 1966.


quite old post from the forum [042405 @ 214p]

[ mood | excited ]

"Dear All,
Sorry for not posting recently but it's been a little quiet in the world of Broadcast.
Since the end of the last tour the band have just been busily working away on the new LP, the tracks that I've heard so far sound fantastic - Trish's vocals sound sublime and the songs are spot on.
We hope to have the LP out in Summer 2005 with shows to follow.

i've changed the layout a bit. just the entry style & some other small stuff)

Hello all-

I am a huge Broadcast fan, obviously. There are other LJ groups, but you've got the best name. I wondered if any of you had been to the band's site and listened to the streaming audio?

I am sooo in love with those playlists & have tried to find some of the performers from said playlists but to no avail..
any ideas?


Ahoy hoy. [071304 @ 550p]

Quiet here. My name's Hazz, got into Broadcast just after the release of Haha Sound. Can't quite remember how I got into them. I probably read a review at Pitchfork or something. Anyway, downloaded some stuff, loved it, bought the album. Again, loved it. Then found out they come from Birmingham which was a lovely surprise as I come from there too. :D

Um, that's all I guess. Broadcast are good, having to save up to get all their stuff is not >_


the stillness is on guard. [070404 @ 1217p]
