Scottish Pop Song of the Day #8

Boards of Canada – Dayvan Cowboy (2005)
Following two cardinal albums wound around vintage synths and discombobulating samples, (1998’s ‘Music Has The Right To Children’ and 2002’s ‘Geogaddi’), electro-diviners BoC embraced the vestiges of rock for 2005’s ‘The Campfire Headphase’. It infused their psychedelic machine music with swathes of woozy guitars, to delirious effect – not least on the mesmeric Dayvan Cowboy. It’d probably be called ‘chillwave’ or ‘hypnagogic-pop’ these days, but then – and bereft of such cultural parlance – we used another word for it: awesome.

Buy the Campfire Headphase (Warp), from whence that aural intoxicant derives, right here.
