Boards of Canada - In A Beautiful Place In The Country LP


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.”
