Boards Of Canada confirm Vinyl Reissues
Today's a great day to be a Boards Of Canada fan.
Warp Records, responding to demand, is repressing and reissuing Boards Of Canada's catalog, spreading them out across October and November. First up are the LPs, Music Has The Right To Children (1998), Geogaddi (2002), and The Campfire Headphase (2006), available October 21. Warp follows these with the EPs, In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country (2000) and Trans Canada Highway (2006), along with the mini album, Twoism (1995), scheduled for November 18. Take note Hi-Score fans - that 1996 EP gets a vinyl reissue through Skam later this year.
Each Warp reissue will include a download code and an original Boards Of Canada sticker design from its accompanying era. They're all available for pre-order now.
The latest Boards Of Canada LP, Tomorrow's Harvest, is available now via Warp.

Jean-Claude Vannier- Je M'Apelle Geraldine (mid tempo) 4. Can- Vitamin C 5. Boards of Canada - Zoetrope 6. Gregory... (continued) [read more]
