Sunshine Recorder

Boards of Canada - Sunshine Recorder (from Geogaddi)

Boards of Canada (commonly abbreviated BoC) are a Scottish electronic music duo consisting of brothers Mike Sandison (born June 1, 1970) and Marcus Eoin (born July 21, 1971). Boards of Canada’s music is reminiscent of the warm, analogue sounds of 1970s media and contains themes of childhood, nostalgia and the natural world. Mike and Marcus have mentioned the documentary films of the National Film Board of Canada, from which the group’s name is derived, as a source of inspiration. Their earliest recording that is commercially available now is 1995’s Twoism, which was re-released in 2002 by Warp. Initially another limited release, it was sent to Skam Records, who were impressed enough to sign the brothers and release another EP. This was followed in 1998 by their breakthrough album, Music Has The Right To Children. A masterpiece of ambient IDM, it brought them widespread acclaim from music critics and instantly made them stars of electronic music (although Boards of Canada very rarely give interviews or perform live). After a couple more EPs, their second full-length was released in 2002. Geogaddi was again widely praised, although it was not considered to be quite as good as Music Has The Right To Children. Third album The Campfire Headphase (2005) saw a slightly different style, with more conventional structures and the inclusion of real instruments. It received mostly positive reviews, but some reviewers were disappointed with the new sound. Nevertheless, Boards of Canada are still very well regarded by fans of experimental electronic music, and their fourth album is highly anticipated.
