Some more gentle electronics from Boards of Canada. This is a bit of a cheat, since it’s a Peel Session rather than strictly live.


The version of “Aquarius” here has a slightly different intro from that on the “Music Has The Rigth To Children” LP, a different sequence of numbers, and an added synth line (or perhaps vocal sample) in the middle, and is also slightly longer. It’s also noticeably different from the single version of “Aquarius”, which seems to be in a different key. “Olson” is radically different from the album version: the synthesizer sounds are completely different, the airplane noise is replaced by a scratchy, almost insect-like sample, a melody is added in the middle, and the track is almost twice as long.
