Is this a 180g pressing?

That occasional bleepy background sound in Aquarius might be sampled from "Steve Miller Band - Fly Like An Eagle" (1976).

Telephasic Workshop is Boards of Canada at the best


November 15, 2015
The first major release by Boards of Canada. Downtempo trip-hop beats meet atmospheric and organic analog snythesizers. Many of the tracks are 5+ minutes of subtley changing hip-hop rhythms and beautiful synths such as "Telephasic Workshop", "Sixtyten", and "Pete Standing Along". These tracks are broken up by small musical ideas that usually finish in under two minutes, such as "Triangles & Rhombuses", "Kaini Industries", and "Bocuma". "Olson" has to be the best of the shorter tracks, and possibly one of the best BOC tracks ever. 1 minute and 31 seconds of pure,organic instrumentation that just makes you reflect upon life.

Repress still available for those who don't care about it being an original pressing.

Quite possibly THE BEST electronic album of the 90's! 11 out of 10!!

I got a violation listing this record even though it's exactly the same press. It's got the sticker just liked mentioned in the notes. It's got the same catalog number, matrix and barcode. Same cover, vinyl, hell it even smells the same. What can I do...whatever whateverever.
