about

Broadcaster Providence

- "Broadcaster plays fuzzed out, frantic indie rock that clearly has its roots in the classic period of the late ’80s/early ’90s when the indie world was more concerned with rocking out in a basement than growing a beard and recording folk songs in a cabin."
Kevin Finn, The Noise

- Voted Providence Phoenix's Breakthrough Artist of the Year 2011

-Released "Drunkard's Walk" EP on 75orLess Records

Track Name: La Brea
We wandered down on La Brea
fell right into the tar
You've got some stuck in your teeth
You've got a boot on your car

so what happens, so what happens now?

Smiling mastodon skulls
suffocate with their bones
I think they're trying to say
it just looks better that way

so what happens, so what happens now?
Track Name: Choke
when you fall asleep and wake up somewhere else
still where a tattered badge, you're such a danger
to yourself
choke down another one for me
i'm sure in a while it'll make a great story
under that same old bridge where you lived
on and off for years and years
tired old liver still drunk off your dog hair beers
why stop now
why stop now
Track Name: Passerby
peeling back the tired tracks
that just keep slipping through your hands
scattered words and stray concerns
they linger longer than they stand
spit it out, sing it out. we've known it all along
spit it out, sing it out. let it drip like saccharine from a radio song
you've been told this house is sold
so don't come back around here again
as you stall just know that when you fall
we'll be waiting at the end
spit it out sing it out, we've heard this one before
spit it out, sing it out, just let it slip into the floor
fey refrains pass you by
and echo down the halls
stay the same, be a passerby
someone I don't need to know
Track Name: Drunkard's Walk
A drunkard's walk is a joy to watch
can't predict a steady path
the only hope is that they'll bottom on out
but nothing ever really lasts
there's a point when you hit a wall
your eyes keep rolling in your thoughts
subtlety has been wearing us thin
still I don't know what I have lost

Stay where you are and dig into the ground
they will follow you down

I think I'm trying to say, I think I'm trying to say
you're wrong
What I think we're trying to say, the drunkard
simply staggers on

Stay where you are and dig into the ground
they will follow you down

the drunkard simply staggers on
Track Name: Index of Bands
in an index of bands, can't remember the name. you can level the peaks. make them sound the same.
it compresses the sound.
got an index of bands with categories and styles, i get so numb to the noise, the bit sizes, limits, and files
this compresses the sound
Track Name: Waiting On
sunlight's burning in my eyes
so I hide away 'til noon
I find solace in my sleep
still it's stolen away too soon

I'm just waiting on my change

supplement a stagnant wage
like a slave to sloven fools
split my check to buy a dime
it always burns away too soon

I'm just waiting on my change
Track Name: Old Creep
Take a seat next to the old creep
he's a legend in this town
he's been driving fine on no sleep
still all this drinking's got him down

had a long talk with the old creep
'til he banged my head against the bar
says let those fossils fall beyond me
still I'm mired in the tar

I've got this sinking feeling
like all my teeth are rotting out
I think I've finally found the ceiling
you've got me feeling like an old
got me feeling like an old creep
