Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Boards Of Canada: Mike Sandison, Marcus Eoin.
  • Recording information: Hexagon Sun.
  • Photographers: Marcus Eoin; Michael Sandison.
  • The first American release by this Scottish duo has drawn rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. The music ranges from goofball, Perry-Kingsley style retro-techno to ambient (in fact, sometimes eerily reminiscent of Eno's "Ambient Music I") to just about anything else you can dream up for a couple of synthesizers and a drum machine. Boards Of Canada's music has drawn frequent comparisons to wildlife documentaries from the '70s, but you've got to wonder what kind of nature documentary would have distorted drum machines and weird voices darting in and out of the mix. Weird? How about downright goofy? Like the nitrous-oxide flashback of "The Color Of Fire" where a distorted girl's voice keeps repeating "I...love...you" through the dizzy haze. Much of the disc has delightful vignettes interspersed between the longer tracks, and the longer tracks will reveal something different with each listen. Unabashedly lo-fi, this is the soundtrack to a drug experience for which no drug exists.
Professional Reviews
Q (Magazine) (p.124) - "[A] thing of wonder....The aural equivalent of old Super 8 movies..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.54) - Ranked #91 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "[T]hey took electronica into space. Cleverly referencing the esoteric side of '70s Test Card music in all its trippy glory."
