Boards of Canada - Twoism (2002) Retail CD
Almost as elusive as the act themselves, Twoism has been exchanging hands for anything up to £800 since its original 100 copy vinyl release back in 1995. Available for the first time on CD, re-cut and re-mastered, this near-mythical collection of minimal ambient treasure is as listless, pastoral and evocative as its follow-up, 1998's Music Has The Right Children and this year's Geogaddi. Even more understated than its successors, Twoism drifts with indolent beats and droning keyboard hooks. Hidden away in their remote Hexagon Sun studio in the highlands of north Scotland, Marcus Eoin and Mikemore… Sandison inhabit a reclusive windswept world that is too damn cold to produce chill-out music. What you have here are delicate, deceptively simple, emotive soundscapes that bore right to the heart of the listener and refuse to be ignored. Broken into eight tracks but seemingly one continuous gentle sonic glide, Twoism opens with the mesmerising melancholia of "Sixtyniner" changing course only for "Basefree" with its restless itchy break beat and urban menace. At turns soothing and haunting it stirs feelings of desolation while somehow creating an intensely intimate feel. Laying the foundations for a career that has seen the duo become renowned exponents of blissful organic electronica; Twoism is an essential (no longer missing) link in the acts evolution. --Christopher Barrett
