Broadcast “The Future Crayon” [warp]

A collection of unreleased rarities, songs from EPs, and 3/4 finished sound pieces. Broadcast hails from Birmingham, England, they sound like Kim Deal (on the Amps record) meets Stereolab, with a heavy psychedelic, prog, fuzz influence. This is pretty typical of a B-sides style collection, with more polished sounding, almost poppy tracks mixed in with less ‘produced? soundscapes. Eighteen tracks total, there is something on here for anyone that likes candy coated switchblade Pop with a lil? fuzz-a-delia mixed in….many of the tracks with no vocals would make a nice bed. If you are a Broadcast fan, then this may disappoint you as a complete ‘album? but some good bits and pieces throughout.
