Phewwwww – I’ve been following this since RSD; obsessively keeping up morning and night. I knew it was getting close today with the new website developments that happened. I’m still not even sure how they discovered the last 6 digit code – it was all updating so fast! The moment I saw the final code posted and I successfully logged into the website… not sure how to describe that feeling as it rarely happens. I imagine this is what it feels like to win huge on slots. Truly cathartic.

Boards of Canada will continue to be the soundtrack to my life. Great times. This makes me so happy.

Sweet…I can’t wait for this to come out so I can hear what Tycho is gonna sound like in 10 years. :P

So excited for this release. It’s been so long….
If I have any gripe at all, I’m really not crazy about the album cover art. It seems devoid of that certain nostalgic essence that makes BOC so amazing and such a soundtrack to my childhood and innocence. That’s just my opinion. Hope the music is incredible though.

this should be interesting. will they just keep making tunes that only satisfy core BOC fans, or will they actually do something new? campfire headphase was ‘nice’, but not exactly on par with their warp debut…hoping they push the boundaries a bit more (and by push i don’t mean add acoustic guitar).
also, my fave BOC tune is sunrise projector. wait, i mean sunshine recorder. wait…shit, dammit tycho!

I KNOW IT

The misguided commenters criticizing Tycho as a BOC clone are actually betraying their superficial grasp of the genre (and ironically BOC). It’s like saying that Muddy Waters and Albert King sound the same because they both play blues.
Hmmmm says:April 30, 2013 at 9:30 pm
Its not really like that. Nostalgic, reversed melodies & whispery voiced, beat driven synth music wasn’t a “genre” until people started biting the original. This is a natural progression in art, but it still doesn’t change the fact that someone came with an original take on something, then others went “wow” & wanted to let it influence them a little too much. Some people feel Tycho is clearly a biter, some don’t, but I think it’s safe to see there’s agreement he’s got an obvious flavouring. Bad or good it’s no doubt there.

WILL THEY TOUR AGAIN?

Well somebody has to start a genre, don’t they? I hear more Ulrich Schnauss than BOC in Tycho’s music. Whatever, it’s still very well-made music. So easy to be a critic. So hard to make music.

Being influenced and being a clone are two very different things. Determining the genesis of a “genre” can be nebulous to the point of futile.
Those of us who grew up in Canada clearly recognized the influence of the music of the National Film Board Of Canada in BOC’s music when it arrived on the scene (beyond the name of course).
