EP Review: 'Spin' by Broadcaster

Artist: Broadcaster (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, BandCamp)

Broadcaster's follow up to 2013's brilliant A Million Hours is the equally brilliant four-song EP Spin. Since hitting the scene in 2010 with their full-length debut Welcome To The Wetlands, Broadcaster has been cranking out consistently excellent catchy, hook-driven, '90s inspired indie punk. In five short years the band has released two albums, four EPs (counting the “Postage” single), and three splits with no sign of slowing down. Spin is exactly what one would expect from a Broadcaster release with songs about the ups and downs of life, relationships, and love as seen through the undeniably perfect blend of Sicko-meets-Buffalo Tom style rock 'n' roll that dares you to not get caught up in the hooks and melodies. Broadcaster is simply one of the best bands around today and easily one of the stand-outs of the '90s inspired acts but don't be fooled into thinking they are a nostalgia band because records like Spin are timeless fitting as perfectly next to the underground hits of 25 years ago as they do next to the best music of today.
