As ever with Public Service Broadcasting, the match of astutely sourced samples and sounds to subject matter proves crucial. The narrative for their third album Every Valleytells the story of the spectacular success and tragic decline of the South Wales coal mining industry. This album offers tight “guitar motifs, subtle orchestration and thrilling sound bites of times past”, as well as guest vocals from the past and present.
“Beautifully captures a sense of awesome industrial
power and a crushing sense of loss.”
