I see you there
your long black hair
your eyes just stare
your mind is turning

you know I'll laugh
and I won't take it back
I've seen your eyes I know
what your thinking

and one by one
we'll shoot our guns
we'll have fun
don't ever doubt it

and when I say
fare thee well
my only friend
oh how the days go

your setting sun
your broken drum
your little drugs

I'll never forget you
never
forget
you

Music to slash your ankles by.   Move on.  
So incredible!
More Boards of Canada might be in order.

But somebody else will have to upload it.  Done with uploading exotic material. 
Bill;

You play a little too much Beck for my taste, but it is your station. Otherwise you are OK in my book.  
Wait, it's that talentless guy... I love Beck and hate Kayne!
I've probably said this before, but this is the best track (BY FAR) off Guerolito!!!

When, if ever, are Boards of Canada gonna do some more gorgeous remixes of pop songs? :( 
I am becoming a massive fan of this guy's work.  Thank you so much Mr & Mrs G. for your wonderful work.
WOW ~ THIS IS GOOD !! {#Cheesygrin}

Never. They're too weird (and good) and they don't have any marketability to speak of (note they don't have a lead singer, nor do they usually use one).
 
Are they mainstream yet?  Seems like all my friends know who they are, but I do have some odd friends...

Wonderfully weird.
Fantastic sound quality on this one: the clarity and sound-stage seemed to jump out a bit more than in the songs leading up to this one, and I've been on the default browser/flash mp3 stream which is 128Kbps I assume. Must have been produced and mastered well...

As a side note: a good song! :) 


There is just nobody like Beck.

Sounds kindof like Ringo on the drums in an old Beatles tune, in fact the whole thing has a Magical Mystery sound to me.

This particular track is available on the "deluxe" version of Guero, in addition to Guerolito.

more Boards of Canada please Bill! :bounce:
Finally get to hear this! Good remix, great groove. Now if only we could have more "native" BoC tracks in the library. (There's just Aquarius.) Hopefully my two LRC uploads from The Campfire Headphase will make it to the main channel.

Boards of Canada is simply amazing. Hands down the best track off Guerolito.

Whoa Boards of Canada rule. Had NO idea they remixed Beck. That rules, thanks RP!

Wow. Beck should have Boards of Canada remix his entire catalog. I like this better than anything else he's done.

Guerolito is the Album. It's a collection of remixes from Guero. In my humble opinion, Boards of Canada is a highlight along with tracks from Air and Diplo.
It's also on the Limited Edition version of Guero that has the extra songs and the DVD.

This reminds me of something Eno and John Cale might have put together...that plus the sassy grapefruit flavor gets it an 8!
Nice thought. Beck Hansen is one of the more intelligent & versatile pop artists around.
melllooowww. :meditate:
Beck and BOC. Yes. A cool 8.

Who rated this less than 5 seconds in? You can't rate stuff that fast! Talk about snap judgement!
Maybe they heard it prior to it being played here. Plus, this version made the rounds in the LRC for awhile.

Nice 80's end-of-a-movie feel.

Dude, you can't have possibly heard more than 10 seconds of the song when you posted that comment.
