spectral machine music balancing short vignettes with longer tracks - the scottish duo's sophomore effort remains continues to deliver evocative, mournful, sample-laden downtempo music often sounding as though produced on malfunctioning equipment excavated from the ruins of an early-'70s computer lab.

'Geogaddi' has a bit less in the way of melodics & as a result, sounds slightly less like trip-hop for fairy tales & more like the slightly experimental, but definitely produced, electronic music it is. '1969' is particularly lovely, with starburst synthesizer lines & disembodied vocoders trilling the chorus. For 'Sunshine Recorder', a very fitting vocal sample prefaces the melancholy synth, vocal cut-ups & glacier-speed basslines. It's clear Boards of Canada laboured long to create 'Geogaddi', since only a tremendous amount of work can produce music that flows so naturally & unobtrusively that it never sounds produced.
