About this item

Four years on from the massive 'Music Has The Right To Children' Boards Of Canada arrived with triple album epic 'Geogaddi'. It features 23 three tracks of haunting, spooky, exquisite unique electronica. Instead of just repeating the formula of its predecessor, the Scottish duo pushed their sound in a darker direction. However, all of the qualities with which Boards of Canada are identified are still present. Their melodies ooze and whoosh, in an out, rarely repeating and rarely staying true to key or convention. Their timing is startling and impeccable, laying down the biggest of beats in the smallest of places. Syncopation and clipping are not as prominent on 'Geogaddi' as they were on 'Children' but their subtle and frequent presence is crucial to each song's character and presence. Their production is painstakingly attentive to each detail, and it pays off. Every kick of bass drum is perfectly symmetric, crisp, and full.
