Boards Of Canada – Trans Canada Highway


Unit price per

A mini-concept LP, Trans Canada Highway follows the Scottish brothers (who spent time in Canada) as they trek from St. John's, Newfoundland, to Victoria, B.C., in under a half-hour. Beginning with the only old track, "Dayvan Cowboy" (a highlight of 2005's The Campfire Headphase), Michael Sandison and Marcus Eoin sound just a little refreshed at the thought of producing a low-impact EP instead of an eagerly awaited LP. After the slowly shifting single gets out of the way, Sandison and Eoin start looking back to Geogaddi territory, reprising ghostly effects and skeletal melodies with quarter-speed hip-hop beats to create a work that would barely take you 45 miles along the highway but, put on repeat mode, wouldn't even sound tired by Montreal. The sixth track is a remix of "Dayvan Cowboy" by Anticon associate Odd Nosdam, who shows his allegiance with his own mostly beatless soundscapes, which warp and flow with the best of BoC. ~ John Bush
