It's great to read all these reports from you guys that were actually there. Well done for making the effort, it sounds like such an amazing experience. It was great to watch from my lappy and the build up on here (twoism) was sensational. Can't wait to have my own listening party now!

Lovely creations. Yours? Or where did you find them?


I made them, yes. The original photo was posted earlier in this thread I believe. Can't remember who by.

I think it's Split Your Infinites but I am stating that mostly off checking the time stamps on tonx vine uploads. That one was 16 minutes after (5:10) one that is for sure during Cold Earth (4:54).

thats just incredible if its true. man, what i wouldnt give to see them live. i really want to thank the boys for all this.

a couple of people who know of BoC but not enough to care couldnt understand why i was so psyched about today. i tried to explain that imagine your favorite band who you thought was never going to release a new album and after 7 years of radio silence have come out with this incredible ARG that ignited the fan base and has helped reveal the new record.

they still didnt get it. but i know you guys do.


Josh from WARP showed me the text. That is for real. They had their own camera people and were snapping pix with iPhones to send back to Scotland. The brothers might not have been there, but they were and it seems they liked what they saw. Lots of love in the BOCosphere today!

Oh, one other quick note I think New Seeds fades out with the tune that was Cosecha Signal One

I just had a very emotional 20 minutes or so, watching the live stream (cutting off at Jacquard, of course!) and reading the posts on this thread alongside it, having everything match up. Gemini nearly gave me tears.

I can't wait until this album drops, and I'm horribly envious of the people that got those posters and stickers.. But I can live with the fact that we'll have this fantastic album, and that, according to Josh from Warp, the band really does love us!

I have never been more excited for anything music-related, and I think it's been a long while since I've been this excited for anything at all..

Thanks for taking me on the ride, even if it was a few hours later. ;)

Before I throw my two cents in, I gotta say something to all those who made the drive today: How good was that shower when you got home? Hope yours was as momentous as mine.

So, today.....

The setting was absolutely perfect. The desert has always been a second home to me, and with the addition of the abandoned water slides, buildings, graffiti, clipped palm trees, staircases, and general post apocalyptic vibe it was just ideal. The strangest part about the location for me was that I remember coming to the park as a kid. As I stood at the top of the now crumbling towers, I vividly recalled being launched down a slithery tube to a pool of blue water below. And now here I was, strolling around the shell of a water park. But for an entirely different reason, and with eyes that have seen a lot since then.

The weather was great, parking plentiful (ha!), and perfect for random photos. I ran into a good friend straight away, who was actually there for a totally unrelated photo shoot! She had no idea about the BOC event until she arrived, but is a fan and stayed for the album premiere. Sawa!

The amount of random stuff strewn about was really cool, I found some kids playing cards, weird old necklaces, and took home a "Welcome to Lake Delores" sign.

Not much to add about the album......it was incredible. The wind and surroundings obviously boosted the experience of hearing it for the first time, but as someone noted already it'll take on different forms the more you listen to it. Headphones will be an entirely different experience, listening in the car, etc. It absolutely shows progression, a palate both familiar and refined. As I heard someone say on the way out, "not as warbly as other albums, but still has that strange and haunting thing going on". Enough beats and atmospheric passages to satisfy fans of all of their work. I loved the silence between tracks, as everyone waited for the next to begin. It was a meaty length (shut up), and I couldn't help wishing for more when it was over. But for some odd reason which I can't explain - it felt kind of final to me. Who knows, this may the last we hear of BOC. More than likely not, but it was a vibe I couldn't help but feel. Hmmmm....

The crew were really nice guys. The dudes who brought out the PA gear used to work with a friend of mine, so we traded a few quick stories about him. And the english guy from Warp, Josh I believe? Nice guy as well, and we talked about how my father mastered the "Broken Drum" remix they did with Beck years ago. Kudos to them for helping bring this day to fruition.

I also talked to the property owner a bit, who said he's planning on re-opening the water park with an added RV park and possibly a motorcross track. Seems far fetched, but who knows? Maybe we won't see it in it's current condition for very long......

I have some pictures I'll post when I get them loaded up, and if anyone is really desperate for a sticker - send me a PM and an address. I have maybe ten I could part with.

More later, I'm fried. This post is gonna look bizarre to me after I get some rest, so excuse the rambling.

A decade ago BOC kickstarted the fire inside me that burns to experience music. It would have been an honor to shake their hands however, this dance in the desert with their synthetic spirits echoing through the ghostlands will suffice.

I think it's Split Your Infinites but I am stating that mostly off checking the time stamps on tonx vine uploads. That one was 16 minutes after (5:10) one that is for sure during Cold Earth (4:54).


Thanks! But maybe it is the next track, Uritial. The Quiteus description fits in:
"This is a short instrumental piece that drones like a buzzing fly trapped in a jam jar – or maybe a synthesised didgeridoo."

Comfortable saying it is not Uritial. That one was distinctive. Buzzing. drone. And I think but am not certain it was beatless.

What a fucking AWESOME day! I'm super tired and will keep it short, but I uploaded some pics/vids to a tumblr page if anyone would like to check it out: http://www.tumblr.com/blog/macromicromusic

Can't wait to listen to this album on repeat for a year straight!
