Editorial Reviews

2013 album from the British Electronic duo. Taking in archive material from the BFI and Studio Canal along with classic American public information films the album sees the corduroy-clad J. Willgoose, Esq. and his faithful drumming companion, Wrigglesworth, seeking to fulfill their mission statement over a wide range of subject matter and styles. Through the record the band weave samples from these films around live drums, guitar, banjo and electronics, creating an array of diverse tracks. What emerges is, by turns, thrilling, moving, funny and powerful; or, if you will, informative, educational and - most of all - entertaining. They blend the voices of the past with the music of the present to astounding effect.

Public Service Broadcasting are a bit different. Anyone familiar with their War Room EP already knows this. They build music using found footage, those Pathe Public Service Broadcasts or similar recordings. Using guitars, banjo's, electronics and all matter of instrumentation and all vocals layer over this with a theme. The War Room was an excellent EP and had the fantastic Spitfire as its central track which had a driving guitar riff and was memorable from the moment it started. That track is here along with ROYGBIV and Everest from previous recordings. They are great, the only concern was that over the length of an album would this become too much of gimmick or would they be able to sustain the quality. The answer definitely lies in the latter category, although where they go from here I am not quite sure.

The new tracks include Signal 30, which gives Spitfire a run for its money in the big guitar riff stakes. Night Mail is one of the most British tracks you will hear this year and uses a Royal Mail soundtrack with great rhythm. Lit Up slowly seeps into your consciousness as its slow build feels a poppy and upbeat as anything I am likely to hear this year in standard form. Other tracks hold their own as well.

This is an innovative approach and one that works. It won't be to everyone's taste and may not last more than an album. But it does deliver some great tracks and will be on many end of year lists.

a great record that gets better with each listen. every track on the album belongs where it is- plenty of powerful jams like spitfire, signal 30, night mail, everest, and also great atmospheric cool downs like qomolangma and late night final. this is how you make a great album that covers a wide range of emotions and ideas. it doesn't try to fill all of the space with sound- it lets things grow and take on a life of their own.

"With 2013 being a better year for music with the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Daft Punk, and Boards of Canada arriving from the shadows after many years, the year only gets better with Public Service Broadcasting, a recent experimental King Crimson-like rock/electronic act from London that complements TV/radio samples in their music which flows accord with the melodic vibes of a Domino Records artist and the whimsy of a Ninja Tune or 4AD artist. Without the attractive album cover, a catchy name that eerily reminiscent of the Future Sound of London and Boards of Canada, and positive review from Q Magazine, this album might have been missed. Thankfully, it is not and serves to show that amidst the deadening airwaves full of Mumford & Sons and The xx does have some intriguing music to show amidst the almost-commercial clutter."

BEST SONGS: Theme from PSB. Everest. (all unique in their own way)

I was hooked from the very first track, a great mash-up of and prelude to the rest of the album. Each track has it's own theme and life force pulsating with energy, all strung together in a rainbow of emotion.

What a great ride.
