PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING – THE RACE FOR SPACE
(ROCK): The progressive rock/experimental duo of J. Willgoose (guitar, banjo, samplings and electronic instruments) and Wrigglesworth (drums, piano and electronic instruments) have forged their own path in music. For instance, with this Best of 2015 release, Public Service Broadcasting found a way to convey ideas verbally without using a vocalist. Race For Space effectively employs samples or news clips, and actual recordings of transmissions from manned space flights to lift the listener into another world. The duo effectively uses imagery, while creating a one-of-a-kind sonic sheen which all but defies description. If this isn’t compelling, I don’t know what is. Check out the title track and “Go!” to hear why.
