"Squid are back with ‘Broadcaster’, the AA-side companion to their recent offering ‘Sludge’. The tracks are getting a limited edition vinyl pressing, released via Warp Records, featuring an extended version of ‘Broadcaster’. ‘Broadcaster’ is built around an arpeggiated synth sequence that was conceived during a writing session in a woodland cabin by Arthur whilst the rest of the band were out hiking. As the song develops, guitars, drum machines and delays join the fray, pushing the track into its chaotic and visceral crescendo. All this works as the perfect foil to singer Ollie Judge’s oblique lyrics. Paired with their richly percussive and sonically evolving ‘Sludge’, the quintet not only opens up their sound, but they do so without abandoning the experimentation and playfulness that made them such an exciting prospect when they burst on the scene just over a year ago. Limited edition 10” in paper inner in printed outer sleeve."
