Sentimental Ornament: A Broadcast Rarities Mix

In celebration of what would’ve been the deeply-missed Trish Keenan’s 52 birthday, Aquarium Drunkard presents a survey of rare Broadcast material pulled from a variety of lesser-known sources. Not touching on any of their collaborations, inventive remixes, nor live material (save for a Nico cover from a 2003 Peel Session), Sentimental Ornament finds the inimitable group at the most experimental edges of their galaxy.

Broadcast :: Sixty Forty (Nico cover)

Broadcast’s cover of Nico’s “Sixty Forty,” taken from their final Peel Session recorded in July 2003, finds the group exploring the perfect middle ground between the (then about to be released) cracked pagan kaleidoscope of Haha Sound and their next move, the searing minimalist cut-up Tender Buttons.
