Very well written and evocative of a lot of my own feelings on the subject.
Thank you for this.

Hey, thanks. I think If I feel it, then we all feel it. That's just how powerful their music/message is.

Not sure if this is what you are hinting at, but I tend to think that the title MHTRTC has to do with how open and impressionable our minds our when we are children. The sounds and music we hear as children deeply affect us much more than the stuff we hear later on in life.

Agreed. MHtRtC, with it 1970s nature documentary and Sesemy Street samples are clear references to the Brothers' own childhoods. Obviously alluding to how much of an impression music has on children at a young age.

Must be someone who really loves making BoC influenced music. Tempest is actually pretty awesome.

I dunno. A band who has expressed disinterest in social media and the internet at large randomly decides to drop full tracks on an unknown social media account? I'm not buying it.

Don't let me stop you though. If you find any other awesome tracks let us know!

This is Ben Machin. I seen the Facebook post. He's a great musician and overall a great guy. I've talked to him before and trust me, this isnt BOC. He''s just great at making BOC inspired music.

It is VERY good music. I was sure it was them :) I was also linked to this music by Ben, but thought his profile looked suspect.

It's unmistakably not BoC. Anyone that tries to do a BoC tunes goes way too hifi or lofi, this is so clean and underworked that it's just a nice, decent homage.
BoC's final master output is super clean of course but it's the process that's been pawed over for an age to get the lofi.
Other people try and match BoC sounds in a quick easy way then age in the mix and master. It should be the opposite if you want to make a tune that could be theirs. You cannot create a sound that they would use with one source. Spend time destroying sounds in their infancy, turning things inside out and degrading on the way in, combine many sounds in order to sound like one. Then once mixed and sounding how it's meant to be, master really high quality.
Of course i'm still speculating, I don't actually know but because I do very similar you kind of recognise how people could get their sound by the accidents and surprises from your experimentation.
Also, with the melodic content, you have to get into their minds and assume what they will come up with by studying their past techniques all while assuming that they will have learnt new tricks and expanded their chops. Their chops are again unmistakeable and people who try to make a BoC tune have their own style which gets in the way.

Mumblings of an idiot, sorry.

I agree almost 100%. The old sounds are exactly that.... old, made by physical artifacts from a heavy production process.... My favorite quote from their interviews is “I don’t think people listen to our music the same way we do..... considering what goes into making it..” and also “we literally just jam out on instruments for hours and hours...” ....they combine hundreds of one key sound onto one mono track for micro-blending...i am sure there is a whole side to their music they we have no idea about and that possibility really intrigues me..

I'm not a huge unreleased BOC expert. But you have to be listening to them for the first time in your life. To think that ost is BOC

You can say whatever you like. But, I'm sticking to my intuition on this one. One thing for sure, is that I'm not afraid to be wrong.

It's always interesting to listen to anybody's interpretations of Boards Of Canada's track, album titles, song lengths, the list goes on. At the very least it proves that we are supposed to be thinking about this.

I'm sure they're working us up to something new though. I can feel it in my bones. It's getting close. And It's great that all their old music is likely reaching a new, younger audience.

I mean... I'm 40 (which is likely what I'm really feeling in my bones) and as you will read in the article I wrote, I remember very well listening to them for the first time, as many of you do too. I for one get very excited by the fact that they are still lifting the heads of the youth. That is an incredible achievement for any band. The past inside the present. It gives me hope for the future.
