thought broadcast - Thought Broadcast
*Brilliant submerged drum machine and low-end executions from the hugely influential Olde English Spelling Bee imprint housed in a heavy card jacket* After a while out of the game, the most influential label of the hypnagogic epoch returns with an unsettling debut album by Thought Broadcast. Named after an early symptom of schizophrenia whereby sufferers "describe their thoughts being broadcast, or available, to others", the mood of 'Thought Broadcast' is suitably paranoid and confounding, with an aesthetic clearly harking back to the late '70s/early '80s Industrial music of Maurizio Bianchi, The New Blockaders or Coum Transmissions/Throbbing Gristle. Blunted drum machines, acid-gargled vocals and disintegrating tape loops are heard through fathoms of ferric noise. Everything is monotone grey and primal as possible, struggling for survival in a noxiously polluted sound world while constantly under pressure of its own psyche and unable to make sense of itself. Tape loops are manhandled, prodded onto the tape head and smudged at oblique angles to disturb the effluent flow of slow drying concrete and sewer juice. If Vinyl On Demand had pulled this out and said it was from '79, we'd probably have believed them, but it's actually new stuff. It's definitely made for acquired tastes and we don't think it's going to convert many to wearing trenchcoats and a scowl, but if you've had faith in Todd Ledford's taste up until now - his label's probably introduced you to James Ferraro, Rangers, Ducktails - then it's definitely worth your time. Recommended to fans of Nate Young, Mr Maxted, Aaron Dilloway, Henry & Hazel Slaughter, Maurizio Bianchi…
