Warp's shadowy duo return...

Add your comment »

After several week's worth of excited chatter following Record Store Day's series of clues hinting at the existence of a new Boards Of Canada album, the first new music from the duo since 2007's The Campfire Headphase has now come to light. You can watch the video for 'Reach For The Dead', taken from new album Tomorrow's Harvest, via the embed above.

The track was first shown at midnight in Japan, on a large screen in the Shibuya district of Tokyo yesterday. You can read about the odd choice of premiere here. It was then aired on the Marc Riley show on BBC Radio 6 this evening and is now available to buy from download stores.

Keep an eye the Quietus for a track-by-track preview of Tomorrow's Harvest (due out via Warp on June 10).

Enjoyed the music. The video imagery was great too, like the empty cabinets and old home, the windows & the tunnel.

Wish I thought otherwise but these guys have been vapid sentimentalists almost from the start... Kudos for the mystery etc but there's no reason for this to exist in a world with Autechre on one side, L. Pierre the either.

I've never understood the fuss over this band. The arpeggios in this track for instance are dull beyond belief.
