    News of the decade : Boards Of Canada announce new album. "Tomorrow's Harvest"

    You can officially say you heard it from me first. been waiting over 5 years for this and the wait is now over. It started with a mystery release on record store day found in a record store in new york with 30 seconds of audio and 6 numbers:

    Then 2 days later another mysterious record was found in 'Rough Trade East' in london:

    followed by a 40 second video found on youtube with another set of numbers



    2 adverts on the radio

    then an advert on cartoon network...




    all pointing to a large code.


    later today the Boards of Canada website directed to a very basic VAX operated website requiring a password

    http://cosecha-transmisiones.com/

    then some brainy box figured out the last 6 digits by doing some stuff i dont understand...


    and..hey presto...a new album was anounced.....

    may i just add that some of the dnb labels should take a leaf out of warp records book cos THAT is how you organise an album launch..

    News of the decade would be Peter Andre's demise either through him losing his voice or his face being horrendously scolded so he's too ugly for TV.

    Unless it's that, it's nowhere near.

    You make that statement, followed by an insult....

    Sometimes your stupidity stuns me.

    To be fair if a d&b label tried this the records would just sit on the shelves collecting dust and the cartoon network thing would just leave confused kids and nothing else.

    hah fair enough! more referring to the organisation of the record label rather than the whole process. ie, warp records managed to plan all of this and digital soundboy didnt even manage to release the grand funk hustle ep within 3 months of the digital release

    - - - Updated - - -

    holy shit! the current bid is up to $4,250.00

    Re: News of the decade : Boards Of Canada announce new album. "Tomorrow's Harvest"

    I think they are probably the leading pioneers of the whole downtempo and idm thing and maintained such a low profile by rarely doing interviews and only performing a handful of times in the last 20 years they have been producing which is remarkable considering they have well over quarter of a million fans on facebook. Part of their mystery is how they've had such artistic integrity but have maintained creative consistency without being critisised for being uninventive. Many artists who may have seemed forward thinking at first have eventually lost their creative flare (burial springs instantly to mind). I will post up some links to tunes tomorrow. Well worth a listen

    Ok maybe just one. Honestly do yourself a favor and just full screen it and don't skip forward. One of the most mind blowing pieces of music I have ever heard
