Rarely does a gem shine out from the dull ground of contemporary electronica, but when one does it should be treasured. Such is “Ha Ha Sound,” Broadcast’s second album.

The ’60s have clearly had an influence on Broadcast that extends beyond the group’s fondness for turtleneck sweaters. Eulogizing The Velvet Underground, they erect a screen of noise and guitar feedback as a foil for the cool, fragile vocals of singer Trish, while their confessed love of often bizarre European library music (stock music for film/TV use) helps explain the presence of the quirky instrumental passages.
