Editorial Reviews

The idolized and enigmatic duo are back. After considerable speculation by their rabid fan base (not to mention the media following every step of the way), Boards of Canada have revealed that their new album Tomorrow s Harvest will be released on June 11 via their long time home, Warp Records. Musically, the album is somehow dark yet positive, with atmospheric dissonance and mind-bending melodic creations.

Boards of Canada have always brought a sense of dream like nostalgia with every album they've released, each album being more of a journey into a 'past that never existed', as well as a great listening experience. With Music Has the Right to Children, it seemed to be through such things as public information films, educational documentaries, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and obscure Video Nasties, evoking a sense of longing for that era with child like dream-scapes. Geogaddi was like a dark, demonic, claustrophobic nightmare, those dreams replaced by nightmares and dread that was more `tales of the unexpected' than `tomorrow's world', invoking a darker side to the nostalgia, using mathematics and numerology and reverse speech (A is to B as B is to C, Gyroscope, The Devil Is In the Details). Then came out The Campfire Headphase, (their most accessible offering), which was like an Eno-esque calm down after the storm, the Boards channelling their nostalgic sounds through wobbling folk like music and organic guitars, with soaring epic melodies like `Dayvan Cowboy'. Unfortunately, for BoC, it was a little too 'straight forward', but still a 'pleasant' listen.

With `Tomorrow's Harvest', most of the nostalgia seems to be that of despair and nihilism. It's an album that builds in a new way upon their previous work and casts it in a 'those golden days are over' kind of light that correlates with the direction the world in general seems to be heading. The sounds of a broken world, paranoia of the future, the cold war (echoing the Protect and Survive [DVD] videos that they flirted with on Geogaddi), and the sounds of a planet 'wasting away'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Latchkey Kids Soundtrack June 17, 2013
Format:Audio CD
From the opening horns of "Gemini" to the fading strands of album closer "Semena Mertvykh" there isn't a moment on Boards of Canada's Tomorrow's Harvest where you wonder whose album this is. There has been a veritable silence from the direction of Scottish brothers Marcus Eoin and Mike Sandison since 2006s Trans Canada Highway ep. The silence has ended and we are all the better for it.

Tomorrow's Harvest isn't a rebuild from the ground up; nor is it a retread of past glories. This is an album showing artists being true to themselves and not being anything but what they've always been. What's that? Purveyors of the past and sound tweakers of the future. For a lot of folks the feeling you get listening to a Boards of Canada album is nostalgia. It's the sound of Juno Synths, Yamaha DX-7s, distorted breakbeats, and a childhood set to repeat play on a Quasar Hi-Fi VCR. With masterpieces Music Has The Right To Children, Geogaddi, and The Campfire Headphase, Boards of Canada had a mainline into childhood. Not a Disney childhood, or an ABC Afterschool Special childhood. A Latchkey kid childhood. A darkened living room with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a can of New Coke, watching something you shouldn't on The Movie Channel because your mom forgot to lock the channel. It's a childhood of wonder but dark spots that could lead to something darker. Tomorrow's Harvest is the soundtrack to a Choose Your Own Adventures book, a walk home from the city park late at night, or a car ride to the roller skating rink.

"Telepath" is a perfect example of what Boards of Canada do so well. The sound of a man talking and counting would be harmless enough, but what they do to it. They process it, taint it, make it into almost something Orwellian and create something dark out of it.

Boards of Canada have almost inoculated themselves against criticism, they are so vague, and release so little material that if they were to release an album of white noise and bird tweets their fan base would go mad and rate it the most forward and interesting music in decades. I am a major fan, and was so happy that this album was released, that I jumped to it like the rest of us. I bought vinyl, cd and FLAC versions of this album - deep down I felt maybe if I supported them in this way they would give more to all the poor starving BOC fans out there.

Several months have passed since the release of this album and I am now more able to take it apart critically. First, the good - the album is tremendously layered and interesting to listen to, particularly in headphones, and they seem to have gone back a notch by simplifying their arsenal and ignoring the light hearted, hyper mid range-y sound that annoyed some listeners of Campfire Headphase. The bass is awesome, and takes center stage. They also appear to be working in a fully analog sphere on this album, the arpeggiators and synths, rhythms and filters all sound decidedly old school - and this is a major plus. The mood of the album is dark, atonal, almost existing between two states of mind, and this gives Tomorrow's Harvest a riveting and pertinent narrative. It is unveiled like a film, opening with a salutary trumpet which plays like the title card of a now defunct action movie company. There are songs that burst with a certain joy of reaching a climax during the best jam sessions (Jaquard Causeway) and solid brain-mashing beats (Cold Earth), and lots and lots of classic Boards of Canada interludes that act as transitions or might also be signs of life from a recently deserted space craft (Telepath, Transmissions ferox).

5.0 out of 5 stars Just some thoughts on 'Tomorrow's Harvest'.
If you think `Tomorrow's Harvest' is "dark" or "moody" then I don't you've listened to enough music. Pop in Cabaret Voltaire's `Red Mecca' for that. Read more

Based on the video content and tracklist we've seen so far (all we have to go off of so far), am I the only one getting the feeling that there's going to be some sort of apocalyptic element to this album? Something that paints a living landscape that is devoid of human life...something that... Read More

I hope so. They still haven't shipped my copy but are insisting it will arrive tomorrow. So, since that's impossible, I hope I'll be able to at least get the MP3's tomorrow.
