PREVIEW: Public Service Broadcasting - Inform - Educate - Entertain - upcoming album

Public Service Broadcasting's music is where the past meets the future. I've had my eye on this lot for a while now, and following last year's brilliant 'Everest' single and some impressive EPs, I'm glad to hear their debut full-length is ready for release. It's hard to sum up their musical style, without a doubt they provide a refreshing and unique sound that has to be heard... 

The duo sample old public information films and archive material and set them to new music. Live, the films are screened simultaneously as laptops are fiddled with, drums are pounded, theremins are wafted at, guitars are bashed and banjos furiously plucked. Teaching the lessons of the past through the music of the future. 

Ahead of the release of the album and next single 'Signal 30' (out 15th April) the band are offering a beefed-up reworking of old favourite 'New Dimensions In Sound' as a free download. Expounding the virtues of newly-invented stereophonic sound - 'a feeling of life and nearness in the music' - this dramatic track of two halves serves as a two-channel taster of what to expect from the album. 

You can download the track for free and watch the video for ‘New Dimensions In Sound’ from the links below: 

 J. Willgoose, Esq. and his drumming companion Wrigglesworth will embark on a mammoth 46-date tour of the UK in late February, March and May in support of their upcoming single and album. Confirmed summer festival slots include Wickerman and Wychwood with many more yet to be announced.
