Boards of Canada Music Has the Right to Children / Geogaddi / The Campfire Headphase [Reissues]

It’s never been a better year to be a fan of this Scottish electronic duo: in addition to their newest album Tomorrow’s Harvest coming out in June, we also got vinyl re-presses of their previous three full-lengths on October 21 (EP re-presses are scheduled for November.) Now that there are finally options besides the pricey re-sellers, I strongly recommend checking out each Boards of Canada release in this format to perfectly complement the warm scratchiness that their music is known for. Their earliest, unreleased-to-the-public works remain shrouded in mystery, but the 1998 full-length public debut Music Has the Right To Children quickly earned enormous critical acclaim. That record’s brand of ambience and IDM isn’t easily defined: when I listen to its rich, otherworldly sounds, my visions include grainy footage of flora and fauna, fog-cloaked mountains, blurry summer memories and dawn-of-the-computer-age electronics. Whether the emphasis is thick, fast-paced beats or sheer ethereal grandeur, each track gives a unique ride with its heavily treated effects ranging from vibraphone to synth to who-knows-what-else.

Four years later, the second album Geogaddi followed. It featured many of the same elements found on Music Has the Right to Children: intricate, looping and warbling electronics and slow-pumping beats. If there’s one aspect about this album that feels different to me, it’s the more subdued and dark nature. Gorgeous tracks like “Music is Math,” “In The Annexe” and “Julie and Candy” explore more of Boards of Canada’s colors, with more the foreboding “Gyroscope” (which made it into the horror film Sinister last year) and harsher “The Beach at Redpoint” setting new moods to expand the sound beyond rose-colored Super 8 memories.

My first exposure to Boards of Canada, however, came in the form of 2005’s The Campfire Headphase. The “dance” beats were pretty much dropped in favor of heavily treated acoustic guitars with more “accessible” song structures. While it’s a different beast from their previous works, the progression still feels true-to-form. The duo demonstrated that they can make even the most conventional instruments sound incredible: “Chromakey Dreamcoat,” for example, uses an ever-changing guitar loop as a foundation for walls of vibrant, breezy synth. The skydive-perfect “Dayvan Cowboy” demonstrates an amazingly effective use of tremolo to soar to out-of-this-world heights. I could keep going on talking about how the other songs are great as well, but since that’d a while, I’ll just say that I recommend all three of these Boards of Canada album re-presses. I think their music is gorgeous, and I’ve never been disappointed by one of their albums.

Why? Golden Tickets

(Joyful Noise)
The seven songs on this EP were created as Yoni and Josiah Wolf “Internet-stalked” several fans through sites such as Facebook and Twitter, so each is an indie-rock “homage.” After golden tickets were distributed in a variety of ways (a charity for tsunami relief in Japan, a tornado benefit through eBay, an iconography contest, etc.,) band members checked social media and even asked winners’ significant others for info to give the unique prizes. The resulting songs are pretty catchy: for example, the breezy, pop-infused “Hunter Van Brocklin” tells from the perspective of a Southern man who moves to the West Coat to compose music, and a lonely OKCupid user’s profile inspires the shimmering and very sad “Murmurer.” “Dropjaw” takes the most unconventional approach as a made-up, Rasta-infused transcription of a mute video that an anonymous dreadlocked, shirtless fan sent them.
