Music to Button a Cardigan By: Echo's Answer


Broadcast is a British indie band who filters 60s psychedelia and library music into their dreamy pop sound. Similar to Stereolab if we need to clumsily compartmentalise for brevity.

The singer, Trish Keenan (above), sadly died in 2011, but a new Broadcast album featuring recordings of her vocals has been mooted by the single remaining band member James Cargill.

Echo's Answer, our latest cardigan-friendly tune, is from their 2000 album The Noise Made by Other People. It reveals their confessed love of the 60s band United State of America, particularly Cloud Song. Fabulous.

Released as a single in 1999, no official video of the song exists. We're talking bona fide hidden gem here.
