Public Service Broadcasting is the corduroy-clad brainchild of London-based J. Willgoose, Esq. who, along with his drumming companion, Wrigglesworth, is on a quest to inform, educate and entertain audiences around the globe. PSB’s uniquely spell-binding live AV Transmissions see them weave samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material around live drums, guitar, banjo and electronics as they teach the lessons of the past through the music of the future – beaming our past back at us through vintage TV sets and state of the art modern video projection devices.
Surf Rock is Dead
Surf Rock is Dead
Hailing from Chicago and Melbourne, Australia, Kevin Pariso and Joel Witenberg--together Surf Rock is Dead--embody the beachiness of their namesake's genre through a new wave filter.

Their intercontinental exploration has led to all five highly praised releases charting Top 25 on tastemaker favorite Hype Machine. Four of those five were included on their recently released SRiD EP:“Anymore,” which "at its core...is modern surf music, but" with "nothing frothy about it" (Under the Radar); “Zen A,” a song as swelled out as the waves that open the track--"a strange contradiction that leaves you pressing play on the track over and over again" (NYLON); “Late Risers,” a dreamy haze ribboned by its Cure-inspired bass that is "a testament to the power of the human imagination--and their bleached grooves—that...can conjure a baking beach and some existential ennui in the middle of a frigid winter" (NOISEY); and "Never be the Same," which yields "softly hued piece of cute-as-hell indie pop with some serious surf vibes...a heavenly confection" (CLASH Magazine).

And like their recordings do, and Time Out New York noticed when they named Surf Rock is Dead as one of CMJ 2015's best acts, the duo's captivating live show crashes over you in the best way possible.
