Album Review

A mini-concept LP, Trans Canada Highway follows the Scottish brothers (who spent time in Canada) as they trek from St. John's, Newfoundland, to Victoria, B.C., in under a half-hour.

The sixth track is a remix of "Dayvan Cowboy" by Anticon associate Odd Nosdam, who shows his allegiance with his own mostly beatless soundscapes, which warp and flow with the best of BoC.
