RIP Trish Keenan
I was very sad to hear the news that Trish Keenan from Broadcast died this morning. I first saw them supporting Stereloab in the mid-90s and it was immediately clear that they were in a different class to most other bands around. They were one of a kind and wrote songs that linger in the best ways.
This song, Message From Home was the first one I thought of when I heard the news. Probably because the line "Now the leaves are off the trees / The view is clear, this time of year" comes to mind so often on cold, clear winter days.
