After the tragic death of Broadcast's Trish Keenan in 2011, it fell to surviving member James Cargill to make sense of the vast archive of unfinished material left behind. Having issued a handful of rarities and unheard versions in the time since, as well as a posthumous soundtrack, the absolute final word from Broadcast and their trusty label Warp will be a pair of staggered releases that feature previously unreleased demos. Out in May, Spell Blanket collates three dozen demos and song sketches for the album that never was, taken from the MiniDisc and 4-track recordings Keenan left behind, while Distant Call is due in September and features two unreleased songs, as well as demos for songs that would be re-recorded for inclusion on some of the duo's classic records. - Flying Out

Spell Blanket comprises songs and sketches drawn from Trish's extensive archive of 4-track tapes and MiniDiscs. The recordings lay the groundwork for what would have been Broadcast’s fifth album, offering a window into Trish and James’ creative process during the post-Tender Buttons period from 2006-2009.
