There was this haunting, atmospheric melody that I once heard on a BMW commercial, (someone diving into an empty swimming pool, on top of a skyscraper, at night). This tune stuck in my mind and I tried to track it down, but with no luck. A couple of years later, I was playing Royksopp in my shop, when a customer came up to me and said 'have you heard of Boards of Canada?, they are similar to this, only better'. On the basis of that comment I bought the Goegaddi album and subsequently loved it. On the strength of that album, I bought up the entire BOC catalogue. Imagine my surprise when Kid of Today started playing, the classic BMW track.
For me, it is difficult to come up with the words to do BOC justice. They take music to the next level, blending beautiful sounds and melodies together, causing fantastic feelings and images to come to your mind. Their music is just so atmospheric and refreshing. They are also, amazingly consistent and if I was a film director I would sign them up. immediately.
Sadly, there are people out there that criticize BOC, these people, in my opinion, have no soul or imagination, they just don't get it.
