it'd be nice if they would pop up and say something, anything about wtf is going on with them. if they are no longer planning to release music then that's fine, just seems like a courtesy to all their fans to at least let us know that. I know they don't owe us shit, but c'mon...

remember when TH was released in the Cali desert, and some warp rep said Mike/Marcus texted him to say they love us all? this is an odd way to show your love, by completely ignoring those who really dig them.

Long time no see my dear BOC-Fans! Good news right now! Boards of Canada have a new member! 

Please welcome and make some noise for AKAI DAN!

I agree with you, and think about it more than is probably healthy and normal (obviously), but that’s never really been their M.O. 

As long as they’re still officially with Warp it’s a safe bet they haven’t hung up their boots. I’m guessing life stuff happened and I’m sure the global pandemic didn’t help. 
 

I hope they come back with an uplifting or more calming album next time around, given the anxiety and stress of recent years. Of course a weird cultish dark album would be acceptable too 🙂

not saying a thing is probably a better marketing strategy in their case, whether they've retired or not

'they don't owe us....but they owe us'

it's no wonder they keep their fanbase away with a very long stick relaying light messages through label reps.

yeah I get it, slight bit of contradiction there. guess I just don't know how to properly say that I would love to hear some new tunes from them, without sounding slightly frustrated that it's been 8 years now without a mention of anything coming down the pipe. I really don't spend much time thinking about it, only whenever I see this thread pop up, I suppose.

Maybe one day they might be less hermitical. It would be strange to never bathe in a little bit of the warmth of their loyal fans base. And have a bit of a group hug 🙂

Are they under contract for another album at Warp?

WARP usually don't say either way, so it's hard to be sure.

Oh my mistake, I thought they were on contract for at least one more. Must’ve been misinformed. Well anyways they are still listen under the artist roster. I refuse to believe they’re done until they say so. Which like, yea they are reclusive but they wouldn’t be keeping up with an online presence if they were done.

Just thinking out loud - I can't recall any WARP artist saying they were done with the label (contractually or otherwise) - can you?

I think BoC don't need to do anything for Warp cus they are already "owned" by Warp. If they want to release something they just pick up the phone and Warp are there to support them. 

Good team spirit in that label it seems.

I guess not so point taken, just denying the possibility that there won’t be anymore new boc material. I’m also just naively optimistic and enthusiastic about a new album but I forgot we don’t do that around here when it comes to boc, for some reason.

It's interesting how Pynchon fans only talk about how much they like the works he's already published while BOC fans only talk about the sleep paralysis demon that told them about the cassette tape Marcus buried on the Skeleton Coast at geographic coordinates hidden in the track lengths of their previous albums.

Hey Friendly Stranger 👋 

Just wanted to say I always enjoy reading your posts. I’m also naively optimistic and enthusiastic with BoC. Mainly because if I was (like them) a Legendary Warp Record Music Maker I would have exactly the same approach as they do. Quiet, reclusive and pretty much off the radar. The phone rings and some Warp whippersnapper says do you want to do interviews or any features, maybe show off your new favourite woolly hat in the music press this year Mr Beerwolf? 
 

No. Bye.

I really like how they distance themself from any kind of engagement with internet and fans - I guess its one of the key reasons why their music is still very much on point

Yes and keep in mind how their back catalogue looks like.. You can't deny that this guys have a genuine passion for music.

BoC have tons of unreleased material but now they don't seem to be interested in publicity and not ready for it.. Something is gonna come out for sure and sorry may take many years.

      I've been wondering what is the appeal of very cold, sterile, unemotional music - music that is automatic, jagged, random, indifferent, brash, harsh, anti-musical...
       
       
      What is your favourite music of this kind - how does it make you feel, or does it just make you think, does it inspire you, does it change how you think, do you enjoy the impenetrability?
       
       
      How does it speak to you? How does it make you feel? Can you share examples of your favourite music that might belong here?
       
       
      Is there always something intelligible to you in the music that you like, and the coldness is only a first impression, or do you enjoy hearing music that you can't understand and can't relate to?
       
       
      Thanks!
