- Thought Broadcast by Thought Broadcast
Unhinged and muffled synthetic techno/DA business on this LP here, with thick card screened covers that look pretty cool. It’s total creepy minimal stuff with the odd techno beat and lots of drones and squeaks and whistles and the like. If you put Decimus, John Carpenter, Vatican Shadow and Demdike Stare in a blender and then chilled the resulting concoction, this album is what those ice cubes would sound like. Once you let yourself get sucked in it’s actually slightly melodic and almost dubby. There are songs here, even some buried, digitally cracked, croaking vocals which venture into almost Suicidey territory at times.
Everything is muddied and distant but you slowly get immersed in the dark, awkward grooves and drawn to the little echoed, buried details contained within them. Reading the press release it appears that Mr Broadcast has been making this music as a way to channel, externalise and contextualise the voices in his head and strengthen his grip on reality, so listening to it for enjoyment seems like almost a secondary use for it, but it’s an intriguing and transporting record regardless. If you like late-night records that’ll make you see ghosts, get involved.
