Michael Sandison: “A record for some sort of trial-by-fire,
a claustrophobic, twisting journey that takes you into some
pretty dark experiences before you reach the open air again.”

BBC Music said: “Geogaddi is a tapestry of strange contrasts.
Sweeping synths, crunchy drum patterns and the distorted voices
of children weave in and out to create a surreal ‘third place’.”

TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘Geogaddi’ – 2nd Album By BOARDS OF CANADA

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Geogaddi’ by BOARDS OF CANADA
Released: 13 February 2002 / second longplayer

PITCHFORK review: “The Boards have implemented their trademark tools on Geogaddi, but in the service of a slightly gloomier vision. Granted, the familiarity of their sound could prove to become a liability on their future releases, but it’s easy to see why Eoin and Sandison have played this record so close to the vest. If you’d perfected a sonic playground like this, you’d probably want to explore it a while longer, too.”
Score: 8.6/10 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: A perfect 24-hour chill out record
to play after a wild 24-hour party.
