(6/9/13) Monty's Catch of the Day - Boards of Canada
Posted 6/9/2013 8:25:00 AM

The Scottish duo known as Boards of Canada are back on the scene, and will be releasing a brand new album entitled Tomorrow's Harvest on 6/11. This will mark their return to music since an EP that was released in 2006. The interesting thing about this album is that it absolutely came from nowhere. The whole album was completely hush-hush, and it's origination came in the form of cryptic advertising involving numbers to decode and audio clips of sound that was released on vinyl during Record Store Day 2013. All of the mystery surrounding the white labeled vinyl and the secret code finally pointed to the upcoming release of their latest project. Very clever! Today's catch is my favorite off Tomorrow's Harvest, and it's called "Come to Dust". There are very few bands that can do the whole synthesized ambience and ethereal vibe as well as Boards of Canada...and this LP absolutely backs up that claim. The best part about listening to BOC is that it can really transport you to another world, and make you forget about all of your problems. You can listen to a clip of "Come to Dust" in the audio player above. Good things!
