I rarely make comment on the visual content of the videos, only the song, on this occasion however….
This is a live recording of One Born Every Minute from the LP Filthy Souls – not much there you may feel.
Using 3D printed instruments.
For those who have been with the various sites over the years, you will recall a review of a rock track by The Colour Movement that was completely written and composed by a ‘song writing machine’ to be performed by real musicians. One of the early examples, though sadly the video is no longer available to stream on the article published in 2012, though the video is still available here.
I must find out the cost differential between regularly produced instruments and 3D prints.
Secret Broadcast is the indie rock band made up of Matt Lightstone (Vocals / Guitar), Keith Heppler (Drums), Curt Harding (Bass / Vocals) and J.C. Sandoval (live) (Guitar / Vocals) from Calgary in Canada.

Melody and energy emerge from the speakers on hitting play as Secret Broadcast harness their sounds to deliver well spaced and harmonised music that needs to be heard by a wider audience without delay. There is something almost timeless about the music which contains both an earthy connection and finesse as the out-fit provide music that is smartly delivered.
Secret Broadcast have the ability to create music which is both engaging, yet easy to listen to, giving them a potential audience across many genres and this they have achieved by concentrating on taking the time to develop the tracks with extensive use of melody, which builds in intensity as the songs progress. If would have been tempting to blare out the music, but by taking the volumes down a notch, they have been able to inject the compositions with emotional context, with which the listener is easily able to identify.
Their recently released thirteen track LP Filthy Souls (which is available on iTunes*) is well worth getting hold of.
