Boards of Canada are a Scottish electronic music duo consisting of brothers Michael Sandison (born 1 June 1970) and Marcus Eoin (born 21 July 1971).
In April 2013, a vinyl record containing just 20 seconds of music surfaced during Record Store Day which was believed to be the work of Boards of Canada. Their label, Warp, vouched for the record's authenticity. There had also been hints relating to 6 different 6 digit numbers that the purpose behind were unknown, other than that they were on the records found. When referred to, they are formatted as 699742 / 628315 / 717228 / 936557 / 843361 / 519225.
As stated in our full report, the codes were used on the website Cosecha-Transmisiones.com and led to a video which revealed the album to be titled Tomorrow's Harvest. The album is set to be released on Warp Records (WARP257) on June 11th.
First single, Reach for the Dead, is featured below.
THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT !!
I’m really really excited about this album, can’t wait
Beautiful, my favorite band. Can’t wait for this one, I like the “Futuristic Harvest” concept, hope they make something nice out of it
This is gonna be a loooong wait.
I never thought I would see the day.
Huge release. Where’s the hype?
To tell you the truth, I haven’t heard about Boards Of Canada until just recently. I interested in listening to the album, but I’m much more interested in other album releases at the moment as well.
if you have never heart of them before and did NOW -> there is your hype.
No Doubt…The xxxxxx record store day record sold for $5700 on ebay…30 seconds of sound and a robot saying six numbers for $5700…That’s hype
I can’t wait to get lost in another masterpiece.
The album’s gonna be awesome. I adore their music.
Awesome that San Francisco is on the cover ;)
