Boards of Canada

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Boards of Canada. They’re two Scottish brothers named Marcus and Michael. They’ve put out several brilliant and beautiful electronic records since their LP debut in 1998. Their music is sample-driven, contemplative, and nostalgia-inducing. They use vocal samples a lot, but you can skip them pretty easily. We recommend The Campfire Headphase, our personal favorite, first because it has the fewest vocals.
