Boards Of Canada

Recommended Posts

WOW Boards of Canada is unique and so interesting, so different from everything else in electronic music right now (not that other stuff is bad, Arovane, Autechre, Chris Clark, M83, 65 Days of Static all rockin it ;) ) Listening to Geogaddi for the first time was like the 1st time I ever heard Gong or Saeglopur by Sigur Ros...

 

There is suuuuch depth in the music, it's mesmerizing. It is a lot slower than a lot of electronic music, but it's "moving with the speed and power of flowing glaciers"

 

 

wow, chills down the spine constantly

Chromakey Dreamcoat

Satellite Anthem Icarus

 

from Trans-Canada Highway EP

Skyliner (WOW)

Left Side Drive, so smooth and slow

 

from "Beautiful Place out in the Country"

Amo Bishop Roden, niiice song

 

from "Hi Score" EP

Everything you do is A Balloon beautiful song

 

From "Music has the Right to Children"

"ROYGBIV" fun song, nice

Rue The Whirl... trippy!

 

It all carries such pervasive themes, childrens innocence, paranoia, natural math, birds chirping in so many songs haha flowing with the songs, sounds of the 70's educational and corporate instructional videos, weird but it's pulled off soo well

Awesome Thread. Amazing Group.

 

Geogaddi is definately their best release, followed by Music has the right to children.

 

I agree that everyone should check them out.
