Boards of Canada fans were in for a surprise when a Redditor posted an interesting sample that he found during 2013′s Record Store Day, featuring a short clip of familiar-sounding ambient melodies amidst static. It was soon discovered to be part of a larger viral campaign that had fans scouring the video for eerie videos, codes, and audio clips; the hard work payed off and we’ve been rewarded with the announcement of Boards of Canada’s first release since 2006. This musical group helped define the ‘intelligent dance music’ scene along with artists like Aphex Twin, and their prowess with creating mystical, hypnotic music has been dearly missed. Fans of the group have been rejoicing with the great news, but if you missed out on the group during their initial run now’s the time to get caught up. We’ve included a few of their older tracks below, which should get you ready for when Tomorrow’s Harvest launches on June 10th with 17 new tracks.
