Broadcast Work And Non Work on LP + Download
Broadcast will have their long out of print LPs made available again through Warp Records. Compilation album Work And Non Work (1997); full-lengths The Noise Made By People (2000), Haha Sound (2003) and Tender Buttons (2005); rarities album The Future Crayon (2006); and mini-album Broadcast and The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age (2009) - will all be released on the label in March 2015.
Warp compiled these singles in 1997 to collect the riches that had people infatuated with Broadcast’s distinctive sound. Their retro-futurist vision was brought about by shapeless analogue oscillations and sliced sampling. The dystopian lullaby melodies that featured on singles like "According To No Plan" and "The Book Lovers" were - and still are - completely in their own lane. Trish Keenan’s vacant vocals cascade around the instrumentation and production of James Cargill and Roj Stevens.
What came after this release was a string of truly seminal LPs but it was this accumulation of singles that showed fans the niche Broadcast were hellbent on crafting for themselves.
