Product description

Product Description

2 cd set. Music has the right to children - the first american release by this scottish duo has drawn rave reviews on both sides of the atlantic. The music ranges from goofball, perry-kingsley style retro-techno to ambient (in fact, sometimes eerily reminiscent of eno's 'ambient music i') to just about anything else you can dream up for a couple of synthesizers and a drum machine. Boards of canada's music has drawn frequent comparisons to wildlife documentaries from the '70s, but you've got to wonder what kind of nature documentary would have distorted drum machines and weird voices darting in and out of the mix Geogaddi - 'geogaddi' is the second album from boards of canada and follows on from their 1998 release 'music has the right to children'. Similar to early autechre and aphex twin, mixing electro-synth with sampled hip hop beats and ambient techno. Reminiscent of 1970's educational tv documentary music.

Like dust motes dancing in hazy afternoon sunlight, the compositions of Scottish duo Boards of Canada seduce listeners by illuminating almost imperceptible elements flitting through the cluttered cosmos. Though their saturated hip-hop beats and deployment of timbres as tactile textures recalls Autechre, Boards of Canada are distinguished by sweet melodies and a fondness for using vaguely familiar sounds outside of Western harmonic tradition--snippets of party conversations, bouncing Ping-Pong balls--to function as emotional triggers. Despite its sonic watercolor washes and childlike exclamations of "I love you" ("The Color of the Fire"), Music Has the Right to Children is not some yellowing document scribbled by glassy-eyed, loved-up rave casualties. This exemplary, evocative recording almost hovers above any fixed point on the time line of pop-music history. --Kurt B. Reighley
