Public Service Broadcasting’s debut effort Inform – Educate – Entertain was released to critical praise from the likes of Time Out London, Mojoand GQ when the album was released in their native UK a few months ago. Aesthetically the band, which is essentially the duo of J. Willgoose, Esq. and Wrigglesworth, meshes angular power chords and stomping drums with repurposed sounds from BFI, StudioCanal and old American public service announcements, among others. Check out “Signal 30” which may remind you a little bit of Interpol and White Zombie/Rob Zombie but with more extensive use of samples throughout.
The band has gotten attention across Europe and the UK for their sound and their live shows which include some really great audiovisual footage. And there’s a sense that they’ll be trying to take over American shores – their debut album will see a Stateside debut on November 19th; but before that they’ll be taking part of the CMJ Festival with a show at the Delancey on the 17th.
