The word ‘perfect’ gets totted around all too frequently when discussing music, pop or otherwise, but in the world of Broadcast I would say “Echo’s Answer” is just about there. Culled from group’s 1999 debut lp, The Noise Made by People, it’s also one of my favorite Trish Keenan vocals. Utilizing a spartan, minimalist approach the track, now twelve years old, remains as timeless/beautiful as ever.

  3. Indeed. I haven’t heard anything like that voice since Monade.

  4. Sigh – that voice. It’s not as if the music is special enough – Trish’s voice just takes it to a totally different level. Much missed.
