Artist Of The Day: Broadcast
Whether through despair at letting their labours go to waste or the will to grant his wife a fitting epitaph, bassist and sole remaining member James Cargill picked up their pieces and crafted a piece which, while far from what they originally intended only serves to emphasise the void their departure will leave. Shimmering with the ambiance and intensity of their best work, its electronically-tinged soundscapes perfectly capture the scenes of emotional trauma within the film, impressing both as a stand-alone suite and with the cinematic visual aids. Engrossing and unsettling, it's without doubt my album of the year so far - not that that's saying much!
