Boards Of Canada - Trans Canada Highway download album
Trans Canada Highway is an EP by Scottish electronic music duo Boards of Canada. Originally scheduled for release on 6 June 2006, it was released by Warp on 29 May 2006. It peaked at number 4 on the UK Independent Albums Chart, number 8 on the UK Dance Albums Chart, and number 12 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. The opening track, "Dayvan Cowboy", also appeared on the duo's The Campfire Headphase. Melissa Olson directed the music video for the track.
Sadly, Trans Canada Highway isn't just Boards' slightest effort yet, it's their flimsiest. Of its 28 minutes, five belong to the recycled album track "Dayvan Cowboy" and another nine to Odd Nosdam's wandering remix of the same. That leaves 14 minutes of new Boards material spread out across four tracks, two of which clock in around a minute-and-a-half. No matter how you do the math (and god knows, BoC fans will), it's hardly in keeping with the riches of the Hi Scores or Twoism EPs, and certainly not with In a Beautiful Place.
A mini-concept LP, Trans Canada Highway follows the Scottish brothers (who spent time in Canada) as they trek from St. John's, Newfoundland, to Victoria, . in under a half-hour. Beginning with the only old track, "Dayvan Cowboy" (a highlight of 2005's The Campfire Headphase), Michael Sandison and Marcus Eoin sound just a little refreshed at the thought of producing a low-impact EP instead of an eagerly awaited LP.
