Boards of Canada

Anyone heard anything new from these boys lately?

I just got the Campfire Headphase CD two weeks ago and I've listened to 6 times since then start to finish.

Anyone know if they will be releasing new material soon?...Thier website and WarpRecords aren't much help right now...

They have great stuff...I really enjoyed The Campfire Headphase also...haven't heard of anything new coming out, though, myself...

Re: Boards of Canada

What about Trans Canada Highway? Or was it released before Campfire Headphase? Anyway I love their music very much. Very deep & psychedelic. My favourite album is Geogaddi, but I really love all their stuff. Sorry 4 mistakes I'm from Russia and my English is not in good state.

Re: Boards of Canada

I think Trans Canada Highway did come out after Campfire Headphase...I think it's an EP (a true extended play, as a matter of fact) of the Campfire Headphase... I haven't heard any of that one though...

I'd have to say that my favorite remains to be Geogaddi as well...I have an original promo poster for the release of that album (18.02.02) hanging in my studio...

Re: Boards of Canada

I'd have to say that one of my favourite tracks from The Campfire Headphase is 'Macquarie Ridge' from the Japanese version. To me, it almost forms a bridge between the album and 'Trans Canada Highway'.

Re: Boards of Canada

yeah BOC are great, Campfire Headphase / Geogaddi are among my favorite albums. it's funny though, sometimes I'd be watching Adult Swim or whatever, and when they have those parts inbetween commercials where it's white text and black background, I'd hear like Constants Are Changing or Slow This Bird Down. kinda got me off guard.

another weird thing was that I went around for months thinking that their song Dawn Chorus was by Squarepusher ;(

I suppose 'Music Has The Right To Children' would be the most obvious choice. Or maybe just take everything that they've done (that's commercially available, that is), chronologically if you've the time and inclination. 'Twoism' onwards is an interesting trip.

an interesting trip indeed....BOC creates some truly spectacular soundscapes, I think they sound release mini-movies to go along with all their albums!

Re: Boards of Canada

Music Has the Right to Children is their best album IMHO, the Campfire Headphase doesn't have the sounds that MHTRTC has IMHO, Campfire reminds me too much of 70s instrumental prog rock for my liking.

Re: Boards of Canada

Campfire HP is less noisy, less experimental, easier to listen to, more general-audiences listening, which doesn't make it bad, just a little less adventurous. Definitely worth your time, but if you want something deeper and more experimental/challenging/trippy, Music Has The RTC is where it's at.

I'm pretty sure Trans Canada Highway was after Campfire Headphase, both brilliant!

Tears from the compound eye and Dayvan Cowboy are probably my favourites

Re: Boards of Canada

recently I've been thinking about if the song title Turquoise Hexagon Sun refers to the jewish star. look:

Code:

if you look at the white lines as just a stroke around a hexagon and rays coming off of it, it really does look like a turquoise hexagon sun.

thoughts?
EDIT-
I photoshopped it so it'd be easier to understand

it's not like it's a big conspiracy or anything. was just wondering.

Re: Boards of Canada

Great Scottish Band. You probably don't realise when you first listen to them how many other ambient IDM artists are out there trying to do the same thing since Music Has The Right To Children came out, and almost none of them manage to become peers or BoC, failing to do anything as beautiful.

The only other artists or groups out there that I can think of that challenge BoC in their own subgenre are Casino Versus Japan, or Freescha. Funnily CvJ did an album with Freescha not too long ago. I can't find the bloody album for love nor money, though!
