SHORTWAVE BROADCASTER

Keith Canisius is best known for his dream pop creations and as the founder of Danish shoegazers Rumskib. This week he adds another feather to his cap, releasing an ambient, experimental EP called ‘Everything You Do Is Deja-Vu’ under the moniker Shortwave Broadcaster (available via Saint Marie Records).

 
Shortwave Broadcaster – ‘Everything You Do Is Deja-Vu’ [Premiere]

Keith was inspired (in name) by Milton William Cooper, a broadcaster who claimed to have seen proof of alien existence. In turn the four track release is fittingly spaced out, with meditative signals, hypnotic rhythms, reversed samples and electronic textures throughout.

However the surrealist soundscapes aren’t heavy listening, while fans of avant-garde / drone wouldn’t blink, there’s still leading melodies for more casual listeners to hook into (‘Europa’ for example).

‘Everything You Do Is Deja-Vu’ is a taster of sorts, there’s a sonic theme throughout that could be extended into more indulgent territory and longer compositions. However, there’s no details of a Shortwave Broadcaster full length as yet. In the meantime, pick up the EP at Saint Marie Records.
