Tender Buttons

I recently picked up the new Broadcast album, Tender Buttons. It's really good.

Their early stuff was a mixture of Warp glitch noise and swinging-60s psychedelic pop. Their last album was a bit boring, with one electroclash-bandwagon-jumping track and the rest sounding like a cut-rate Music Inspired By The Sound Of Music cash-in or something. Tender Buttons is a return to form; it sounds like early Stereolab only made with a GameBoy. there's a tight krautrock-esque angularity there.
