I’d like to extend a huge thank you to Pitchfork, SPIN Magazine, The Guardian, FACTmag, Bocpages.org and all of the other blogs who have referenced and helped out. You guys have contributed to this story more than you know. To everyone who emailed, commented, contributed, and shared this story, all of the new followers and likes on Twitter & Facebook, to all those who have been listening and downloading my music from Soundcloud & Bandcamp, and Boards of Canada for putting together this new project. To my the people in my life who understood when I needed to quickly read a tweet or update the blog with the latest news. It’s been a great ride to share with all of you and I will be sure to update the site with the latest happenings with not only Boards of Canada, but other great projects of interest.
Since this blog has started, I’ve found it funny to bring up the fact that there is no new Boards of Canada album in sight for any entry that I’ve found it suitable to mention it in. It’s brought giggles to the readers, and now since it’s released and since Daft Punk have announced their return as well, I find it suitable to pick on the next culprits in the Electronic music scene: The Avalanches. Where’s that new record, guys?! HUH?! WHERE IS IT?!?! We’ll be watching closely…
Tomorrow’s Harvest will be released June 10th, 2013. More information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
