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.
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.
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 archive.org) 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.
