This is sad.

This is terrible news. Trish Keenan has passed away. The sad irony that a woman with a voice almost always referred to as “haunting,” is no longer with us. The Broadcast has made some amazing records, where the fuzzy beats and psychedelic synthlines were always a perfect pad for Keenan’s voice. 2003’s “Haha Sound,” was a truly gorgeous album and it is one I give a lot of plays still. 2009 brought the Broadcast into collaboration with the Focus Group and the resulting “Broadcast & the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age,” was one of my favorite records of the year. On that record everything sounds like a dream or a film score and Keenan’s voice seems to meander in and out of the bounds of each piece like a wandering spirit. I don’t usually say a lot when artists pass, but this totally fucking blows. She was way to young.
