I Love BOC

Left Side Drive & Everything You Do Is A Balloon are two of my favorite tracks.  

Is anyone a fan of Christ. ??  As in short for Christopher who was like the third long lost member of Boards of Canada back in the day.  Look up his stuff it's really good.

There's stuff on YouTube, he has a Bandcamp also

It's BOC like but also very unique.  He is credited on the Twoism album.

Oh man I got introduced to BoC back in ‘06 on Myspace. Dayvan Cowboy was the track and I’ve been constantly listening to them since. Favorite track is I Will Get It Tattooed. Fun fact, some tracks of theirs were used in the first Sinister movie.

I could really go for a new Boards of Canada album. They're easily in my top five favorite artists.

I absolutely love Boards of Canada. Geogaddi has to be my top album, but MHTRTC is a very close second for me.

My favorite album is Twoism, just sounds so peacefully surreal. I also got a friend into the song Chromakey Dreamcoat and we were able to talk a lot about that, so it holds significance to me

Love their music so much. My favorite work from Boards of Canada is "A Few Old Tunes Vol 1" although I also love Vol 2. Check them out if you haven't

absolutely adore Boards of Canada, love everything they have done. It's easier to pick a favourite track for me, which I'd probably say is "Over the Horizon Radar" from Geogaddi. I've listened to it hundreds of times and it never ceases to amaze me and wash me over in a raw feeling of longing. 

I also love the old tunes volumes, with my favourite pre-MHTRTC track being Staircase Whip from Volume 2. I have lots of memories of watching the fan made music video on YouTube! Absolutely love what the community does with such videos, and for anyone who hasn't checked out the non-mainline albums, I heavily recommend you do!

i love all the boc albums but their lost song (idk what you call it, its not on spotify or in their main albums...) is mukinabaht. that and the music video that was chosen for it by a fan for the youtube upload is just... seriously it changed my life and my perception of music and what art means, forever. i just love boc and the music videos fans have made (my second favorite would probably be the bocuma-roygbiv mashup using all the educational program snippets, its so cool)
