I can never get enough of BoC's quality and original sound, but are there any other artists that are similar? I've been trying to find some and failed to discover what I was looking for.
Are there any other artists with the same Warm/Nostalgic/Apocalyptic feeling like BoC

They have a pretty unique sound, so there's not much that I'm aware of.
Christ. is an obvious one that comes to mind:
Bachel has a pretty BoC-y vibe: http://www.ampoulere...r&cat=talent014
This compilation has a little bit of the early BoC feeling to it: http://www.discogs.c...o/release/40985

Ulrich Schnauss or maybe Brian Eno but I don't listen to them so i'm not sure.

a couple of tracks by Fieldtriqp give me the same feels
can't think of many more, it's a difficult sound to find.
edit: is it possible to embed bandcamp links? or was that just a dream I had.

Freescha are somewhat similar in that the fuzzy, nostalgic melodies are present, the melodies themselves are of a *very* high quality and the productions can get dark as fuck at times. Doesn't get much better than Freescha for this sound:

Erm, I'd say early Tycho is similar to BOC... Past is Prologue and Dive are very similar in vibe to BOC.

Also, they go their album title from this:
Leary, Timothy. "High Tech High Life -- William Gibson & Timothy Leary In Conversation." Mondo 2000 7 (Fall 1989): 58-64. Good discussion of William Burroughs, Douglas Adams, Thomas Pynchon, characterization, and drugs by the man whom Leary calls "Quark of the Decade."

can vouch for 1991 high-tech high-life. Dalhous is another really great group, I believe they're even a scottish duo. Their latest album, Will To Be Well was one of my favorites of 2014.
