2013 issue on 140 gram vinyl LP + MP3  -For the first time in over 5 years the Boards of Canada catalogue will reissued on vinyl.  'Twoism' receives a timely repress from Warp. Since release in 1995 it's been recognised as possibly the most crucial and sought-after release from Scottish brothers Eoin and Marcus Sanderson. It turned the heads of Autechre and Skam at the time, who would release BoC's follow-up 'Hi Scores' in 1996, and established a smudged, haunting aesthetic and template which has been co-opted yet never bettered in its time. From the tear-jerking keys and organ wooze of opener 'Sixtyniner' to the dusty, neck-snapping breaks of 'Twoism' and 'Smokes Quantity' or the all-too-breif vignettes, 'Iced Cooly' and 'Melissa Juice', it's every bit the original and exemplary masterpiece it's widely hailed as.

 Initially limited to 100 copies on Boards of Canada's own Music70 label, 1995's Twoism EP set a high standard for future BoC output -- though only the few willing to pay silly money for it were able to hear for themselves until Warp quietly reissued it on CD at the tail end of 2002. For those trying to compare it to the full-length debut (Music Has the Right to Children), it holds up surprisingly well (granted, two tracks here were only slightly reworked for later release). Excepting only the rigid drum monster "Basefree" (which sounds a bit like Aphex Twin circa 1992), Twoism features the same exquisitely spooky, textured emotronica that fans will want to hear, all at as high a level as the brilliant Music Has the Right to Children to boot.
