In our appreciation of Broadcast singer Trish Keenan— who passed away on Friday at age 42— Jess Harvell writes, “the world lost a major fantasist, an unassuming creator of dreamy other worlds.”
Discussing Broadcast's legacy, he goes on: “They had little to do with the retail-friendly post-Portishead  brigade or the soporific surface-level 'cool' of any lounge-pop  revivalists. If anything they were far closer to labelmates Boards of  Canada, another group using warped, wobbly, sometimes even grimy  electronics to evoke the unreality of the everyday, the loveliness of  supposedly artificial sound, the supernatural qualities of circuit-based  music.”

"I think the evocation of memory in our music could be seen as the residue of imaginary time travel. You can either go forward or back. You go back in order to change something in the now, to redesign the course of events for personal reasons. When you go back to a previous musical time you’re trying to recall a memory that never happened to you, that is not stored, so it would make sense that you hear a fuzzy dissolving sense of time and place as you call it."
