Fun fact: 'Left Side Drive' is one of Solange Knowles' favourite songs of all-time. She even covered it with additional vocals back in 2011! Anyway, you aren't here to hear about contemporary R&B, you're here for a 6-track EP/mini album from the Scottish IDM duo Boards of Canada. It begins with Boards classic 'Dayvan Cowboy' and then dips into psychedelic flavoured downtempo, futuristic beats and melancholic ambient. They've never really put a foot wrong, so if you're after a slice of their unique music after you've done all the studio albums then get onto this one.

There was a time here (once upon a time...) that when a new Boards Of Canada release arrived, things would stop while we sat and listened to the treats on offer. The office pets would stop ruining the place, clocks would stop and the phone would go off the hook. Telling times are afoot cos when this new Boards Of Canada EP arrived it was banged on and by the end of it I'd kind of forgotten it was on. A shame really....
Anyway the new Boards Of Canada EP is in called 'Trans Canada Highway' and it's got 'Dayvan Cowboy' on there, a remix of said track by Odd Nosdam (reasonably pointless) and 4 new tracks which drift in and out of comatose consciousness.
'Left Side Drive' and 'Skyliner' are cracking tunes having said that and they're vintage Boards gear (especially the latter). They're not gonna win over any new fans with this one but it will keep the rabid ones out there happy for a wee while no doubt. On 12"/CD which both come with a limited promo DVD of 'Dayvan Cowboy'.
