Boards Of Canada - Trans Canada Highway LP
Regular price $21.00
It has been an incredible 2013 for fans of the revered and enigmatic electronic act Boards of Canada (hugely successful new album Tomorrow's Harvest, their first new LP in 8 years, followed by the announcement that Warp is reissuing their iconic first 3 albums - Music Has the Right to Children (1998), Geogaddi (2002) and The Campfire Headphase (2005) - on vinyl).
That winning streak is continuing as Warp is also reissuing Boards of Canada's 3 EPs Twoism (1995), In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country (2000), and Trans Canada Highway (2006), which all see their first vinyl pressings since their original releases. Like the LP reissues, each project has been painstakingly produced with the fans in mind, from the original DAT tapes and vinyl metal work, to the incredibly matched prints, with each release containing an exclusive sticker.
Following on from 2005’s The Campfire Headphase, Trans Canada Highway continued BoC’s road trip theme but with production scaled back to match their earlier records. "Left Side Drive" took the heatstroke and strings they’d unveiled on the LP and made them quieter, wrapping them around a crisp beat, while "Under the Coke Sign" did that thing with decayed drones in 90 perfect seconds that only Boards of Canada can. Perfect for late summer nights.
