A second copy of Boards of Canada's surprise Record Store Day single has appeared in London shop Rough Trade.
The 12-inch, released through Warp Records, first appeared in New York record store Other Music during Record Store Day last Saturday.
According to Rough Trade it had apparently "stood in the racks for a couple of days," and has just been soldto one lucky and very attentive customer.
"The record contains a brief snippet of music and a robotic voice that reads the numbers "9-3-6-5-5-7." The sleeve reads: "------ / ------ / ------ / XXXXXX / ------ / ------," which suggests the single may be the first part in a series of releases. It is the duo's first official release since 2006's Trans Canada Highway."
I don't think I can take it any longer, although it's been seven years since their last release so what's another few months of uncertainty.
PICKS OF THE WEEK
MIDLAND ON RINSE FM 18/4/13
Midland's show on Rinse FM last week. No tracklisting as of yet but I'll keep my eyes peeled and stick it up should it appear.
DISCLOSURE FT. ELIZA DOOLITTLE - YOU & ME
Needless to say that when a new Disclosure tune drops, you listen. An act that have yet to disappoint my ears. Seriously looking forward to the new LP 'Settle' forthcoming on PMR Records / Island Records on June 3rd 2013.
HEADHUNTER - CHASING DRAGONS
This is by no means new, but I did a clear out of the archives this week and rediscovered a few gems.
Headhunter: Lost Prophet / Chasing Dragons [IDLE004]
BEN SIMS @ BLOC WEEKENDER 2012
one that did the rounds three times last Saturday night. For whatever reason, Ben Sims hit the nail on our pre-session tune desires with this banging set from the (short-lived) BLOC WEEKENDER 2012.
Ben has to be one of the most technically gifted DJs I have come across thus far, and if you asked the two guys up front, I'm sure they would agree. 10-11mins in was my favorite.
A quick run through of what's on in Dublin this week.
F R I D A Y, A P R I L 26TH :
BEDLAM Presents: KLANGKARUSSELL (Tobias DJ Set) (Stil Vor Talent/Austria)
Unfortunately this is already sold out. No doubt it's going to be yet another great show from upcoming Dublin promoters Bedlam. Bedlam have hosted a number of impressive names such as Duke Dumont, Huxley & Ben Pearce in recent months.
CITIZEN @ PYGMALION
Citizen is from London and at this early stage that’s all we know, but we already know all we need to know about his productions even if there is just the handful released to date. They’re brilliant. Citizen’s output is full of character and flair charged with memories of the past glory of early 90s House music. Even though this nostalgia is there for everyone to hear it does not define the music on its own: there is no apparent novelty with the use of the 90s reference which is something that is quite rare as this era of music is often abused and dragged into the contemporary house scene, left with mediocre results probably more than any other when it comes to club music. In the case of Citizen, there is a sense of a deep-seated love of the music that is handled with care and used with the highest skill to produce some wonderful House music.
Support from rising Irish talent Frank B. and Bixon's Dave Mc Donogh.
