Music like Boards of Canada

Can anyone recommend any artists similiar to boards of canada?

Obviously I'm not looking for any bands that blatantly rip them off, just music that is in the same sort of vein.

Thanks.

Re: Music like Boards of Canada

Well its hard to find artists that are similar to these guys (since they are so unique), but check out a guy called Christ.. (Not sure if you know about him already)
The name is short for Christopher Horne. I believe he used to be a part of Boards of Canada (well thats what I have read). He has music that is similar in style. You will like him.

Re: Music like Boards of Canada

Everyone loves Tycho but to me he's just a blatant BoC rip-off (albeit a good one).

You might like Bibio. His album on Warp, "Ambivalence Avenue" is pretty beat-oriented, but his album on Mush from the same year, "Vignetting the Compost", is wonderfully nostalgic and warbly like BoC, but really quite distinct (not very electronic, though, tbh).

Yeah, that Tycho definitely sounds just like BOC.

Yeah, lots like Tycho but I agree with others that I simply rather listen to BoC.

Bibio is good.

My favourite 'similar' artist to BoC though would have to be Casino versus Japan:

YES! Fi and Handcranked are really amazing albums too.

Re: Music like Boards of Canada

a few years ago I released some music for a friend on my netlabel, listening to his tracks always makes me think of boc. (especially a track called Try)

Here are the links to his free releases -

Lots of people said that's a bocc-ish sound. Certainly not with the same perfection level than Boc, but you can try.

Re: Music like Boards of Canada

hey if your still wanting something that sounds like boards of canada, i recommend two squarepusher songs: tommib and iambic 9 poetry. it isn't considered ambient really, but i feel these songs have a really fucking emotional thing about it that also is present in a ton of boards songs.

Maybe you should try the music similar to boards of canada thread:

I mean, it would be kind of pointless for me to copy and paste my suggestions from there into here.
