I don’t want to talk about publicity stunts here, I want to talk about beauty. These last couple of videos by Boards of Canada have a lot of that: the composition of the picture, the colour grading of the film, and of course the music that complements these visual aspects. Above you can see some footage from a listening event in the middle of the Californian desert, where about hundred devoted fans travelled to for 15 hours to listen to the Scottish duo’s new album in full. Just think about that for a moment, what a wonderful experience that must’ve been.
So again, like Reach for the Dead, this one was directed by Neil Krug. And only three more days until the official release date!
Following one of the most clever media stunts in recent music history, more recent news about a new Boards of Canada record had more of an official character. Their first album since 2005’s The Campfire Headphase will be out in three weeks via Warp and here’s a full track wrapped in a beautifully photographed video by Neil Krug. What else.. pre-order if you haven’t yet!
I haven’t read much feedback on Gonjasufi’s MU.ZZ.LE mini-album, but I have the feeling it’s been slightly overlooked. If you haven’t heard it yet, this video is a reminder of its existance.
Director Neil Krug and cinematographer David Myrick are responsible for this and I think they did a magnificent job.
