R.I.P.Trish Keenan (Broadcast)

It is sad to hear about another casualty in recent months: this time Trish Keenan from English group, Broadcast on 14 January 2011. Closely associated with Ghost Box and the whole shebang behind the "Hauntological" meta-genre in recent years, Broadcast have created beautiful yet surreal, sublime and eerily moving songs of the first order. They would have plenty of chart hits if the world we live in had been a better place. Rest in peace and let's hope James Cargill will continue to produce music as chillingly infectious in the future.
