We’ve seen some action from the BOC twitter (and on their Instagram since June 19) at least every two weeks. I wonder if there will be any more liking before 10/20/2020.

It’s definitely funny the AFX announcement is slated for a date many of us had in mind for their 70th tweet/5th Instagram post!

I feel they secretly got a Hex sun guy who watches this thread and whenever there's a lull (like today) they get BOC to like something and start up the speculation again. Pretty clever since it always generates buzz from us thirsty fans! :lol:

I just saw like 294! That like seems to have happened pretty late in the day for UK time. And this is the second time they have liked only one tweet (as opposed to the bundles we saw throughout the summer).

I think they’re just doing the likes every other week or so. They’ve been relatively consistent with the likes. It could be someone doing it for BOC, but they probably aren’t waiting for fans in twoism to remind them, I’d think!

Going back to some discussion on this last page about how 2020 has made us learn and understand many things about ourselves and our culture, I found this on BOC pages which literally describes that process: A quote of Georg Hegel's connects true wisdom of a culture with its impending destruction.

When philosophy paints its gloomy picture then a form of life has grown old. It cannot be rejuvenated by the gloomy picture, but only understood. Only when the dusk starts to fall does the owl of Minerva spread its wings and fly


Makes me wonder, now that we're all wiser than we once were, perhaps BOC will soon be ready to take us on the next step! If they release something soon, it will be excellent timing on their part.

"New Boards of Canada album is coming soon" - Warp claims.
We don't know much about the album yet, except the album title "Poopie Poop".

An official spokesperson from Hexagon Sun describes the album as "brown-note toilet acid".
Fans have been eagerly awaiting a new album from the duo since 2013's "Tomorrow's Harvest".
Lead single "Stinky Poopy" is expected to drop on October 30th, coinciding with the new season of Adult Swim favourite "The Eric Andre Show", which Mike and Marcus have claimed numerous times to be huge fans of.

New Mark Pritchard EP announced today—out November 13, roughly two weeks after OPN. They are sure packing in the releases! And the ? box on beatink is still there.

When I see the company of the ??????? box, (OPN, Aphex and Autechre) I definitely think it's something big. I feel truthfully, the only two bands who would really require a "mystery" announcement are Aphex and BOC. I'm leaning towards Aphex because of the billboards and the announcement in 7 days, but I wish so much it was BOC.

adult swim posted a curious ditty on their IG, some retro screen that says “turn that smile upside down” with a nice jingle in the back.

That is a nice jingle. And it is BoC-esque.

they tweeted “Turn that smile upside down” on 8/5/18 but with no video. So i’m gonna say it’s just a really nice BoC-esque jingle :(

but, AS was involved with the TH arg and they did title that promo video “Look Sad Reel”

It might be the new Com Truise album, In Decay Too, which was just announced today.

https://bleep.com/release/208082-com-tr ... -decay-too

In the press release it says:

"The sources of these tracks range from Soundcloud uploads to pieces made for Adult Swim’s Singles Club (‘Galactic Melt’)".

If it's anything like the original In Decay, it's still something to look forward too.

Agree, sounds more like Com Truise when I really pay attention.

If it's Com Truise, then it's nice to finally get some progression, I get bored of that guys music very quickly but the thing AS posted sound really good! I also get lorn vibes, excited to see whatever it becomes, but... BoC does feel like a stretch, I hear the comparison, but... I'm not 100% convinced.
