Boards of Canada are a Scottish electronic music duo consisting of brothers Michael Sandison and Marcus Eoin. Signing to Skam and then Warp Records in the 1990s, the duo received recognition following the release of their debut album Music Has the Right to Children in 1998. Their subsequent albums, Geogaddi (2002), The Campfire Headphase (2005) and Tomorrow's Harvest (2013), have received critical praise. They have remained reclusive, rarely giving interviews or performing live.
Hi Scores is a near-perfect six-tracker of gorgeous, building ambient electro and loping downtempo electronic breakbeat tracks that are as pleasing to the ears as they are head-bucking funky.
Released December 9, 1996. Hi Scores Tracklist. 2. Turquoise Hexagon Sun Lyrics. Hi Scores was released in 1996, an EP that preceded their debut record and helped build buzz for the group. It was remastered and released again at regular intervals during the duo’s career, notably in 2014 with a new version of the title track. Pitchfork got their hands on it and gave it . /10, saying: The duo’s tonal tendencies were already well developed: all six tracks feature their trademark four-bar chord progressions and cycling contrapuntal melodies. But Hi Scores might be most exciting for the way it breaks from their later work.
