I can’t claim to have been the first blogger to have written about Broken Records, but I first wrote about them back in August 2007, when they appeared as the support to Emma Pollock at Edinburgh’s Cabaret Voltaire. Over the last six years I’ve seen them many times (I did try to count earlier, and it’s well over half a dozen) and they have been responsible for two utterly brilliant albums in Until The Earth Begins To Part and Let Me Come Home. The former topped my end of year list in 2009 and the latter no.3 in 2010.
So yes, I am a confirmed fan.
And now more good news. March 24 will see the release of the four-track Toska EP, comprising the title track, along with ‘See You On The Way Down’ ‘Ward 3 and ‘Revival.’ Believe me, this is a rleease you will want to own.
For now, they have made the title track available to stream here.
Their new album Weights and Pulleys will follow in May…
