The only thing raising my doubt is that it would be an unusually short period of time between announcement and release, if the pioneer date is of significance. Warp always announce new releases 6 weeks in advance, and of course the gap between our two speculated dates is only 3 weeks. Basically, if something were to come out on 12/02/2021, it would have been announced already.


You have the same pfp as someone who was here in 2005, got confused lol

Apologies for the confusion! It was one of the stock avatars and I lazily chose it when I signed up.

I've updated to something a bit more individual (hopefully, lol)

My prediction for the 22nd is that it's not a release date, it's simply the final transmission for BOC and a pre-order for whatever it is! Perhaps for a new website like Coshecha Transmissiones or a new video like Reach For The Dead?

The actual album/collection will be released later in Febuary. Or what would be even cooler is that the floodgates are open for archival releases all throughout the next few years.

If things don't happen on Jan 22nd, well I got nothing. So here's hoping that the date and Warp's silence are connected. :D

After a long silence from Warp, everyone's favorite duo appeared on the Instagram feed today...

Are you ready for it?

Here it comes...

Jockstrap!

Fortunately, it's not a release. Simply a post about them performing live somewhere. The release window's still open...:P

The Instagram feed basically said, "Tonight (now yesterday in the UK) we play Eurosonic!"

Last night I dreamt the box set was announced. I think I need some time out.

Looks like Warp are coming out with a Stereolab rarities comp, which potentially solves the "excludes pre-orders" mystery.

If we don't hear anything on the 22nd I think I'll go into hibernation :lol:

You guys have it all wrong.
You have to use reverse psychology with BoC, you have to tempt fate.

Hahaha no one thinks that it will be the 22nd, what a hideously ridiculous idea.
Do we *really* think they could pull their shit together in such a short space of time?
Knowing them, it will take at least another ten years because, honestly, they are scared.

They are scared of releasing another album and a bocset isn't immediately on the horizon either.

General new release disappointment thread, amirite?
If they release something on the 22nd, which they won't, I will lick your turquoise hexagon bum.

Okay, so now we wait... The hook has been baited.

The thing I agree with here is they probably feel pressure from creating one of the most praised electronica albums of all time. I know I would be. They pretend they don't read the reviews but I'm sure they've peeked at them. They are human after all.

That said, the Stereolab release seems to be on a different record label in addition to Warp. It's not showing up on the Warp releases page or the Beatink releases page. So perhaps, it's not an official release in the Warp catalog and they're simply helping publishing it.

Evian Christ (Warp artist) on the other hand, also has a single released today. That is showing up on the Warp releases on Bleep.com. Perhaps rather than BOC who people view as the second coming of Christ, we're getting an actual coming of Christ. :lol: Though, to be fair, singles don't seem to affect when things are actually released. Darkstar released a single in Febuary and their album was released in the summer.

The placeholder is still there and I still feel that's relevant.

Strange energy you got there going on man.
I agree it may be a far reach. But speculation is fun and more importantly something to look forward to (without expectations), at least for some people.

I like to read the thoughts of everyone posting on here, it’s something to keep my mind off other things. With that being said, please! Keep reaching and keep discussing, I enjoy it. Echelon, especially you.


Oh. And saying there won’t be a release holds the same value as saying there will be, because you don’t know at the end, it’s not about the goal, its about the journey.

Take care guys

Thanks man. I appreciate it. It's really fun to try to figure these things out. When I have spare time in the morning, I look into it.

I've burned out musically on BOC and need some new blood from them, but honestly that doesn't stop me from having fun speculating and making people feel hopeful. I love this community :D

If this is how they make a meal out of old work from Stereolab, imagine what they'll do for BOC.

Whatever comes next from the brothers Sandison, I expect Warp and Bleep to milk it to the nines.

Just to let you guys know that was almost entirely sarcastic and I have enjoyed reading this thread for the past however many years.

I had no issue with it even if it wasn't sarcastic. It's ok to approach this band with cynicism. They've delivered a lot less than Aphex in the last decade, who to his credit, is still continuing to explore the world of sound more openly. (And I give him a lot of credit for that since he's not resting on his laurels as much as our favorite bros.)

The Stereolab rarity release is now in the spotlight on Warp.net so I think that might cancel out Jan 22nd. Still hoping that's not the case, but I think the rarity compilation is the first big release of 2021.

But hey, perhaps this is going to be a year of rarity releases. You never know 8) And that still doesn't explain why our friend MDG popped in here, considering he usually only does that when something is happening. I remember him telling me about two years ago in 2019 that he didn't have much time to come on here so whatever it is, it must be important.

The promise of the next album not being as big a wait as the last doesn't necessarily hold a lot of weight for me - its what was believed at the time it was said, MBV promised a new album in 2019 and that never happened, things pop up in life, stuff gets put on hold it's just life really.

I'm staying optimistic and hoping that the lockdowns and challenges we've all faced have given the brothers the perfect opportunity to piece together whatever they've got bubbling in that caldron at Hexagon sun, either that or they're stuck on different continents and cant get any work done while their now probably teenage children are using all their bandwidth to learn GCSE sciences on zoom :lol:

Anyway, if my demands for a release on 12022021 aren't met then I'll be writing a strongly worded letter to my local MP

We are one week away from 1/22/21. After almost a full two months of radio silence from their social media platforms (after an uncharacteristically high frequency of transmissions last year). If we don’t hear anything next Friday, then we’ll just have to settle back into limbo. I just can’t help but take those likes of comments like “Is a new album coming out soon?” at face value—something has got to be coming down the pike.

Can someone remind me why did we settle on that 22/01 date? Is it only because of Pioneer 10 last transmission? Or were there other clues?

It’s also the date of the first commercial flight taken by a 747, and almost the same distance between TCH and TH. It’s 70 days from Nov 13th, which is when Mars left retrograde (it entered in sept 9th, they posted an IG video that day). It’s also the day Roe vs Wade was decided, Music has the right to not have children.
