Boards of Canada

BoC are a duo from the middle of nowhere in Scotland. They take their name from a film board that made nature documentaries back in the 70s. They use quite a few samples from them. They make very cold, searching ambient-electronic music. This is fantastic music to listen to as you read, late at night. It can get very eerie, but it's so blissful, so calming.

amg: "Boards of Canada specialize in evocative, mournful, sample-laden downtempo music often sounding as though produced on malfunctioning equipment excavated from the ruins of an early-'70s computer lab."

This video is fantastic regardless of the music. Some guy freefalling out of space into the sea.
