Broadcast and the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age

In some quarters considered the best album of 2009, BATFG bring a bang up to date take on classic Piper at the Gates era psych. They retrofit contemporary electronics to revitalise the aural hallucinatory shenanigans explored by the class of ‘67/68. Winningly, organs, electric pianos and all manner of period keyboard flourishes are exempt from the make over treatment. With so many ideas and most of the 23 tracks coming in at around 2 minutes, there’s no time to get bored, though you might start hankering for a proper Interstellar Overdrive proportioned workout. Best approached as psychedelic ambient.
