Album Review

Initially limited to 100 copies on Boards of Canada's own Music70 label, 1995's Twoism EP set a high standard for future BoC output — though only the few willing to pay silly money for it were able to hear for themselves until Warp quietly reissued it on CD at the tail end of 2002. For those trying to compare it to the full-length debut (Music Has the Right to Children), it holds up surprisingly well (granted, two tracks here were only slightly reworked for later release). Excepting only the rigid drum monster "Basefree" (which sounds a bit like Aphex Twin circa 1992), Twoism features the same exquisitely spooky, textured emotronica that fans will want to hear, all at as high a level as the brilliant Music Has the Right to Children to boot.

Simply superb

My first experience of Boards of Canada was buying this EP and - wow - was I blown away? Oh yes...
The tracks are varied, from the stripped down hypnotic simplicity of Sixtyniner to the intense bass and beat of Bassfree (if you play this in your car, you just HAVE to put the volume on FULL) and the atmospheric and warped mystery of Twoism.
If you are not familiar with Boards of Canada, then this is a good place to start.
You should then certainly move on to 'Music Has The Right To Children'.
You won't regret it...I certainly haven't.

The pair's first official release appeared on Skam toward the middle of 1996, and...
