Re: Music like Boards of Canada

Principles of Geometry are pretty similar, kinda find their tracks to be either straddling the edge between BOC influence and just plain rip-offs, check out their tracks 'A Mountain for President' and 'Colfax', I think you can tell which is an example of just ripping off... the other sounds a bit early BOC.

It's hard to find anything that quite matches Boards' perfection though, I feel, people can get the synths totally down but there's always something missing..

Re: Music like Boards of Canada

Porn Sword Tobacco does a great job of making really beautiful, gritty melodic ambient tracks. His latest album has really grown on me, which is more beat oriented than his other albums. He's honestly one of my top 5 producers/artists

Re: Music like Boards of Canada

I actually prefer H.U.V.A. network over Boards of Canada. I've listened to all their albums, have them on my iPhone actually, but I never listen to them (anymore), probably because I think they are (too) artificial. HUVA has beautifully arranged rythms. Also: try Carbon Based Lifeforms (Hydrphonic Garden)

Currently I'm very fond of John Hopkins'album Opalescent. Beautiful, fluid tapestries of sound with excellent percussion breaks. Very good.

Dfuse

Please check out a track called Libra by Dfuse on Youtube. I can't post the link here because I don't have the privilege yet.

This is a track from the nineties called Libra by an artist or artists called Dfuse. It's from an ambient collection I bought containing four cd's. This is by far the best track. I even thinks this is one of the best tracks ever because of it's hypnotic glide, it takes you away in a trancelike state. I loved this piece of sonic art the first time I head and I still do. It has not aged like so much early ambient does and it does not sound contrived or 'simple' like so much stuff from those days. It's really and outstadning piece of music that inspired my own musicmaking. It's also one of the best pieces of music that you can listen to in your car on long drives. Enjoy.

This is a guy I used to network with on myspace, he was quite similar to boards and very good too

Re: Music like Boards of Canada

One album that I like is Everything is Changing Color by Lone. It is essentially Boards of Canada-core, from the little vignettes to even the structure of the longer songs. Still, i find it a good listen, it is very well produced!
