Boards of Canada - Hi Scores 12" (orig. 1996 pressing)
The original 1996 pressing of the Sandison brothers' seminal - and official - debut. Over 35 flawless minutes BOC gave us a fleeting glimpse of what was to come with their equally unbeatable debut LP Music Has The Right To Children released two years later.
This is a perfectly sequenced EP consisting of six tracks each reflecting a different, but unmistakable, facet of that singular BOC sound. From the hard-edged, Detroit-tinged electro of June 9th and See Ya Later, to the disco/boogie inspired disorientation of Nlogax through to the classic brooding nostalgia of Everything You Do Is A Balloon and Turquoise Hexagon Sun - this is an absolutely indispensable release.
As mentioned, this is the original 1996 pressing with braille sticker, barcode on the back, A4 insert and white centre labels with blue text.
