Day 14: A song that no one would expect me to love—Amo Bishop Roden

30 days of music, except just Boards of Canada songs. Day 14.

Boards of Canada – In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country

Ah, now this one is harder, and I see no obvious way to cheat. I don't expect anyone is interested in where my tastes begin and end—not even me. It's the music that's interesting.

But, let's say: Amo Bishop Roden from the EP In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country. This shares a thematic link with 1969 which I'll again leave to BoC Pages to explain.

I don't think anyone would be surprised I like this musically. But this is where BoC's points of reference may be difficult for some, if you take them seriously (a big if).

Before there was BoC Pages, there was a lovely web page titled What the hell is up with Boards of Canada? (still available on that neatly collected the cryptic references of BoC's music from the Geogaddi and In A Beautiful Place era.

To my mind, these references are little more than fun easter eggs for the careful listener.
