Boards of Canada
Peel Session

Where were you in 1989? Personally, I wasn't born yet, but Warp Records were getting started in the People's Republic of South Yorkshire. One of the acts who helped define the ensuing three decades were Boards of Canada whose 1998 'Peel Session' is one of ten radio sessions being released by Warp to commemorate 30 years at the forefront of music.

Boards of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children

Boards of Canada’s legendary debut LP tapped charmingly into its generation’s nostalgia for dodgy TV reception, public service announcements and unforgettable classroom mnemonics. It did so within a contemporary framework of analogue synthesisers and hip-hop rhythms, with a great ear for groove and melody. Today, the mutant, hybrid descendent of BoC’s yearning style is vaporwave, innit. Oh well.

The Sexual Objects / Boards of Canada / Andrew Weatherall / Wavne
Sometimes

Yikes! Just look at the remix goodness on offer here. Sexual Objects is of course the latest project from the Fire Engines Davy Henderson. News in itself but when you have a Boards of Canada remix and an Andrew Weatherall remix alongside another mix from newcomer Wavne then these news gets overshadowed somewhat. 1000 only. Once in a lifetime opportunity.    

Odd Nosdam
Sisters / Boards of Canada Remix

Being a co founder of Anticon and beat maker for cLOUDDEAD Odd Nosdam is a fully accredited forward thinking beat maker. With Sisters he has managed to enlist the ever elusive Boards of Canada into remix duties with an emotionally charged 80s choral/church bell piece and on the back, teamed up with LA producer Teebs.

Hi Scores

We’re always here for Boards Of Canada, and Hi Scores is a release that really shows off why that is. As only the duo’s second release, this 1996 number dates from when people where only just waking up to the BOC sound, and yet it contains such infinite wonders as ‘Turquoise Hexagon Sun’ and the deeply melancholy ‘Everything You Do Is A Balloon’. 2014 reissue edition.

Boards of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest

I still remember the excitement in the office when the promo of this turned up and the real effort we all went into of trying not to be disappointed. It sees Boards of Canada eschewing slightly their rich and textured sound for something more cold and dystopian. To that end it slightly follows in the path of artists who were also looking back at the works of the likes of John Carpenter for inspiration. Not as warm and inviting as previous records but spin it slowly and with patience and there's a myriad of evocative high points to enjoy from these masters of their genre.

Geogaddi

“Geogaddi Boards Cruise?”, “Yeah sweet”. Aaaaah the Boards Cruise… those were the days: spontaneous late night road trips through deep countryside with great pals, blasting Boards of Canada at uncomfortable volumes. Geogaddi is pretty dark and weirdo, so we often ended up lost and a bit scared after choosing this record. 3 X 140gm LP, gatefold, on Warp Records. Beautiful Place!

In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country

As you know, In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country first materialised ‘twixt Boards of Canada’s two bumper-length Warp classics Music Has the Right to Children and Geogaddi, and is, rightly, just as acclaimed. For my money, ol’ IaBPOitC is better produced than either album, the first three of its four tracks an impeccable trio of gentle haunters. BoC really nailed their shtick with this one.

The Campfire Headphase

The Campfire Headphase was the third album from dreamy Scottish wobblers Boards of Canada and if it didn't quite live up to the brilliance of their earlier records, it was still a sumptuous listening experience. Exploring more acoustic textures than before, many tracks begin with lush acoustic guitar figures before the Boards stick it through their wobble board and add their layers of nostalgic synth glory. Do not underestimate this record. For both summer dreaming and winter hiding.

Twoism

As the old adage goes, a man who is Boards Of Canada is boards of life. Yet to achieve the fame that would come with 1998’s Music Has A Right To Children, Twoism was self-released by Mark Sandison, Marcus Eoin and then-BOC member Chris Horne three years prior to that LP. Woozy and cerebral, the eight tracks of this debut offering set the tone nicely for Boards Of Canada’s subsequent electronica revolutions.
