Boards of Canada - Tomorrow's Harvest

Recommended Posts

been really digging into this album again as of late. i feel like it is aging quite well.

 

was thinking the exact same thought a few days ago, I almost can't imagine their back catalogue without it.

Yes, an instant classic - I would say it ranks third behind Geogaddi (you know damn well which LP is #1)

Catalog 3 obviously .... Drone 18 just gives me goosebumps every time, still no idea how they managed to merge that Michael Jackson riff what that Dire Straits vocal snippet

Pfft. Some BOC fan you are - I'm still going through Mike and Marcus' baby monitor recordings circa 1972 they made. #trufan

geogaddi is number 1 in my book. that's a desert island disc for me.

I'm a MHTRTC guy myself.

 

I got geogaddi on vinyl for christmas though, I think it's time for a bit of a trip and play that album through...?

Time to confess. I've never really got on with MHTRTC. For some reason it's always left me cold and uncomfortable.

 

I just think I've never heard it in the right place, at the right time (and on the right drugs). Which of course I shouldn't have to. But that's the feeling I get with it, certainly a spooky album. Dunno, strange fucking vibes, which I guess is why some people really love it. When a lot of people say it evokes warm and fuzzy childhood memories, I mostly get the feeling of being isolated and lost in a very hostile place. The distant childrens voices and the sparse drums and off-kilter drones bother me.

 

Weird fucking album, but I do keep going back to it...

 

(ps I've been a bit of a booze bender the last few days, and hopefully this is a post on the positive side, sometimes I can get a bit carried away when on the hops)

i always found MHTRTC too hiphoppy and a bit too chill. geogaddi is where they really found "a voice of their own". a (near?) perfect, thought-out album. everything matters there.

 

TH and TCH are nowhere near the first two in my book. decent albums, tho.

That's why it's my favorite. It's got an uneasy, spooky feeling to it. Same with parts of geogaddi too.

All of their old tunes are the top for me, ever since I first heard them.

 

Will give another listen to TH soon, long time no hear :smile:

I bought a new cartridge to my turntable (all the music suddenly has some bass and even treble!) and have been spinning vinyl I haven't heard in a while and gosh, this album is just something else.They've nailed that 80s VHS-esque sound design better than anyone before (or after).

And I'm not usually into retro music - in the sense of new artists making vintage sounding music. I don't see a point in that approach. Because when I want to hear 80s sounding music or any other decade, I go to the music that was actually released in the given decade. But Tomorrow's Harvest is for some reason different. Like it isn't actually imitating anything specific - I know many would disagree.
