Boards of Canada strange "treasure hunt" for a new album??
So for those who are into the electronic duo "Board of Canada" - who haven't released an album in 8 years - they are creating some sort of world wide musical treasure hunt!!
They have released six individual 12" vinyls all over the world (like willy wonka golden tickets), and there is a coded message on each of them. Apparently when you put all 6 pieces of the code together it reveals something... what it is going to say nobody knows... but the general consensus is that it indicates a new album release! very exciting, and a bloody marvelous idea!
Only one of the vinyls has been found so far, in new york, and posted about it on reddit. It has 20 seconds of audio and a voice saying 6 numbers. Check it out here http://stereogum.com/1327742/boards-of- ... -day/news/
Just thought this was a very cool idea! Could be a while before all 6 records are found, but the prospect of more BoC is exciting none the less
