    Default All Things: Boards of Canada

    This year's Record Store day (4/20) will go down in electronic music history, as Boards of Canada released a series of 6 vinyls that when put together may reveal a new track, or some type of Easter egg hinting a new album!

    Does Boards of Canada's record-store clue point to new album?

    Enclosed in a simple card sleeve, the vinyl carries just 20 seconds of music: ambient electronica, with a distorted voice reciting the numbers "nine, three, six, five, five, seven". It's a beautiful, eerie sound, reminiscent of the Conet Project. Pitchfork reports that Boards of Canada's label, Warp, has vouched for the record's authenticity.

    Adding even more fuel to the fire, an alleged friend-of-a-friend of the band recently claimed Boards of Canada's new album is due in June. https://mobile.twitter.com/isphotogr...42101737832448
    BoC is one of, if not my favorite electronic groups of all time, and I've thought they were done for years. Looks like they're pulling a Portishead on us!!!

    BoC release track off new album... backwards. See the video here (someone reversed the video so you can hear the track forwards as well):
    Watch/Listen: Boards of Canada's New Track/Video "Reach for the Dead"... Backwards | News | Pitchfork

    Reversed


    Normalized


    As tempted as I am, I think I'm going to wait to hear the whole album in its entirety.

    Long story short, the internet figured out the above picture/tease was a meet up spot at an abandoned water park near Barstow, where Warp hosted a listening party for the entire album! I figured what better way to spend a day off than trek into the desert, so I made the journey and came back with some pics/vids. http://www.tumblr.com/blog/macromicromusic

    The album is incredible, they done pulled a Portishead 'Third' on us! Too tired to post more, you'll find out for yourselves in a few short weeks. YOU HAVE TO HEAR THIS RECORD!
