Boards Of Canada In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country on LP + Sticker + Download Code
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.
Sandwiched between Music Has The Right To Children and Geogaddi, this four-track EP from Boards of Canada blended their fuzzy hardware with sinister cult imagery. "Zoetrope" took a bouncy melody and let it circle for six minutes, while "Amo Bishop Roden" paid tribute to the wife of a member of religious group Branch Davidian with icy pads, syncopated beats and warm wave-like bass. The title track was the climax: eerie swirling keyboards and a treated voice intoning “Come out and live with a religious community in a beautiful place out in the country.”
140 gram vinyl in 3mm spine sleeve with white paper inner sleeve, download card and sticker.
