These two have a knack for conveying their nostalgia through music even to those who are too young to have experienced the media that inspired them (myself included), which is what I enjoy most about their style. If you are new to the group, I recommend taking any "newer stuff bad" and/or "they copied [insert other ambient artist]" type troll comments with a grain of salt and listen for yourself. Its not for everyone of course, but after a listen or two it may stick with you. When I first started listening I only liked their short pretty vignette type tracks, but eventually the rest clicked. Many other artists I enjoy have been inspired by, have inspired, or have collaborated with this group, and I appreciate them for that as well.

25 years prior to BoC - anyone else hear them in Brainticket's 'Another Universe'?

Played Tomorrow's Harvest to an old head and they commented on just how similar it sounded to Tangerine Dream. Which is a good thing, n'est-ce pas?

I was doing some work and couldn't figure out why my laptop fan was making weird noises. I picked it up to move my ear and try and locate the sound something electronic dying a muffled, syncopated death. Then I realized that my desktop speakers right behind the laptop were playing boards of canada on low volume.

ok that will sound odd, someone on youtube claim having talk to boards of canada, and they told him:
since the beginning of summer 2019 we start working on a new album that will be release in 2020
how much true is that? i don't know

Dear Boards fans. If interesting, please go to the rural zones on youtube to find a special colour tribute I made to the box of Canada

I compared an original of Geogaddi with the repress and the repress lacks depth and detail. Different source. Also the colors of the cover of the original are more alive.

Well, what can I say about these guys? They are phenomenal. One of my favourite artists of all time. They produce such eerie, nostalgic soundscapes, and have a unique style all of their own. I'm glad I found them about a few years ago. I purchased a compilation which had one of their songs on it, Aquarius. At first I thought it was a rather silly track, I didn't like it. But then, the more I heard it, the more it grew on me, and the more I got into their music. BoC are like that. They don't tend to make music that is like-able straight away (though that depends on the person listening to it). I love music like that, when you are rewarded for sticking with it. Its that music which I believe stands the test of time.
