Haha Sound Turns 20

If you were to construct a phenotype for the kind of person who listens to Birmingham’s Broadcast, here is what it might look like: Girl, penchant for Czech new wave films, patent leather mary jane, wears a silk scarf as a kerchief, windows down in a vintage convertible, has opinions on the gesture of a work of abstract painting, understands modern dance, dinner is a martini (dirty, gin, olive) and a bed rice with some raw fish on it. Yes, Broadcast, the pop project helmed by the late Trish Keenan, demands a sort of commitment to sensuality from its listener. It demands that you are kind of a gourmand of life, someone with a Taurean approach. And Haha Sound, the band’s second full length record, is perhaps the band’s most sensual release of all.
