Title: I love this album
Post by: Dave Michuda on February 27, 2015, 02:43:49 PM
One of my favorite albums so far this year is The Race For Space by Public Service Broadcasting.  And the best cut on it is Go!  Take a listen...

PSB is a duo that combines electronic-ish music with spoken-word passages from old public-service messages, filmstrips, newscasts, etc.  On The Race For Space, they also incorporate NASA communications with the astronauts & mission control.  For a geek like me who loves music and anything NASA it's a perfect marriage.  I really enjoyed their first album but this one is on another level.

I can't recommend this one enough.  Here's a few more links...

Absolutely BRILLIANT! And I absolutely love it.
Awesome find, Dave. Now to go listen to the others you posted.

High production standards on the video, without taking themselves too seriously. Just totally fun to watch and a really well constructed tune. Of course, I'm a sucker for all things NASA, so I was hooked from the beginning.

Two thumbs up! :)
