Boards of Canada

·      First album in over 7 years.

·      The marketing plan for this album started with a random Record Store Day “12” that eventually sold on eBay for $5,700.

·      The duo streamed the album live in the desert a week before the actual release.

The artwork for the new Boards of Canada is a a landscape for the new album… A gentle morning fog that consumes one’s mind. BOC has been known to make albums that, I feel, create a mellow and sophisticated atmosphere that is very unforgettable.  It’s been seven years since The Campfire Headphase, and I believe they have created another masterpiece with their newest album.

The album Music Has the Right To Children was the opening to this very futuristic and well developed electronic duo.  Since then, I dwelled into their small but perfected catalog of music, making me yearn for more.  BOC had a fantastic maketing plan this year, which made it possible for the public to get their hands on this magnificent record, Tomorrow’s Harvest.

This album is a good mix of BOC and the eeriness of a John Carpenter score.  It’s a record that you want to listen to during a long car ride with beautiful scenery, but with overcast skies.  To me, this record was exactly what I was looking for – not too weird but enough to keep my mind creatively thinking about how BOC was able to achieve the strange and post-apocalyptic movie type sounds that I have always been so fond of them making.  The song “Reach for the Dead” describes this type of music the duo has been creating for over a decade.

I am in love with this record and glad to finally hold it in my hands and proclaim to the world “Finally! BOC put out a new album and it rules!”

This month was filled with some of the best electronic and rap albums. New Boards of Canada and Kanye West, just to mention a few, were on the top of my list.

New comers like Disclosure, who put out a really impressive dance debut and J. Cole who kills it with his record Born Sinner (a contender for my favorite rap album this year) were all a part of my current list.

Also included is an impressive first track by my homie Blake, giving you just a taste of his GhostGoth project! Enjoy the tunes.

Houses

 

Houses’ returns with impressive album A Quiet Darkness: a deeply imaginative post apocalyptic, ambient journey toward the unknown, which creates bold, yet fearful moments.  This album is an elegant soundscape of artistry. It is a landmark in songwriting and composition from an already impressive band. Highly recommend.
