I came upon this band during my quest for girl bands. Broadcast sounded interesting enough that I bothered to download the album, and pretty much right after listening to it, I was seeking out a vinyl copy. The music is a combination of electronic and actual instruments blending keyboards, guitar, and live drums blended with prerecorded, all seamlessly manage to blend together to make a wonderfully enticing trippy mash of beauty. It's incredibly subtile and warm, but everything seems so wonderfully purposeful. Certainly the comparisons to Stereolab are warranted, but there is a different quality to Broadcast keeps the bands sounding unique in their own right.
I also really appreciate the fact that the underlined feeling is usually spacey pop, so the songs do go somewhere and you know where you are the album. "America's Boy" was the song that got stuck in my head immediately, and to this day remains my favorite, but "Black Cat" tends to give it a run for it's placement. What's so neat about this album is that you can crank it and rock out, or you could just relax to it, you name it. It's such a varied yet together album that most folks should be able to enjoy regardless of musical hang-ups.
