5/10 Laurie Staff review, 19 November 2015

Public Service Broadcasting. They’re doing you a public service by broadcasting things of superior importance to your ears. Like generic synth tones, or the hijacking of miscellaneous vocal snippets for their own financial gain. What are they talking about? Some deep shit about space. SPACE. It’s so… big, isn’t it? Remember that time we put a useless lump of metal into space for the first time? NO. I DON’T. I remember when we put a fucking functional piece of metal onto a comet moving at 84,000mph. There’s your drama, make an album about that (don’t).

So, here we are with more melodramatic space synth opera, including remixes of. Who do PSB enlist for a remix? Themselves, apparently. The radio edit of ‘Sputnik’ is a very standard PSB, so ignoring that, let’s move onto the new track ‘Korolev’, which definitely has more of a drive than any of their more conservative plodders, but is totally ruined by terrible sample snippets such as “Higher. (higher..higher..) Further. (further..further..) Faster, than anyone.” (echoes in the brackets). This is base level modern production. Near the end, the song pauses on some brassy horn tone that’s very US patriotism, before the words “I believe in the future” enter, that’s it, you’re done, next track.

Petar Dundov kicks off the 4 remixes of ‘Sputnik’ with a sort of electro/deep house thing that’s sort of the original with a cleaner, more defined, club-friendly beat. It’s alright, has the same big buildup just made even bigger. Bigger than a black hole, probably. Eagles & Butterflies start improving things with a more minimal techno-ish take, still the voiceovers but with less bullshit. Blond:ish take it even further with a rainforest sound environment and the words unintelligible, quietly building to a bouncy kalimba-esque slow groove. Last one melds into the others, it’s a sort of tech-house hybrid thing.

This starts shit, gets better with every track til the last. You may have had enough of ‘Sputnik’ by then though.

It's cool album! All that another man write- bullshit! Space - it's important! Technology - is future!

Thanks Willgoose for nice melodies, ideas and! Most important honor for soviet heroes! Korolev - its not famous! But his destiny is very hard. And he did it!

PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING - Is future word in music!
