Public Service Broadcasting - Spitfire
Okay, been meaning to post this for a few weeks now but better late than never eh? Sampling Leslie Howard from the classic war movie The First Of The Few it's a (oddly enough given the samples) Krautrock-ish track that...erm...invades its way into your brain and refuses to leave.
It's taken from the band's brand new EP, The War Room, a mash up of instrumentals and spoken word stuff culled from the BFI's National Archive. It's all rather moving and atmospheric, a strange combination of clipped vowels and dreamy music that someone seems entirely appropriate given the distinctly retro vibe being created by the Jubilee and Olympics right now...isn't all that torch business just wonderfully, eccentrically old school British eh?
