» Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King's new novella questions mankind's ability to trust others.

 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

 » Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!

Geogaddi, the follow up to Boards of Canada's IDM standout, Music Has The Right To Children, comes wrapped in psychedelic cover art filled with colorful kaleidoscope images that foreshadow the sounds inside. Although Boards of Canada are not the first electronic artists to try and trip people out, they do separate themselves by warming things up with layers of organically psychedelic instrumentation which become the pieces that hold the Geogaddi puzzle together. One could say that Boards of Canada brings the late 1960's into the future by juxtaposing Indian influenced drum beats, unidentifiable reversed instrumentation, and the sound of mumbling children with bangin' electronic beats, dark twinkling synthesizer melodies, and freaky vocoded voices. They then stamp the end results with titles like "1969", "Gyroscope", "Dandelion", and "Magic Window".

Geogaddi is a 66:6 demonic trip from beginning to end, a soundtrack for futuristic stoners, if you will. Recommended if you like Mu-ziq, Aphex Twin, Pan Sonic, or Plastikman.
