Boards Of Canada - Geogaddi album
Geogaddi is the second album by Scottish electronic music duo Boards of Canada, released in February 2002.
Geogaddi is the second album released by Boards of Canada, presenting a darker sound than its predecessor filled with references to numerology, Branch Davidianism and the Bible. Backmasking was also used in the album, leading to accusations of subliminal messaging. The album was well received as a very accomplished album packed with great music, cementing their status as an individual voice in electronic music.
Geogaddi, the most anticipated sophomore full-length from an IDM act since Aphex Twin's SAW 2 in 1994, certainly looks and feels similar to the 1998 Boards of Canada debut, Music Has the Right to Children.

Geogaddi, like Boards of Canada's 1998 debut album, Music Has the Right to Children, drifts its way into consciousness, rolling a fog of dark-hued psychedelia over slow-burning, lullaby melodies. Having led a reclusive existence in their Hexagon Sun studio, shunning interviews and live shows in an effort to escape the shrill, loud praise that accompanied Children's release, the enigmatic Scottish duo has stayed focused, creating another tour de force in the process. Geogaddi opens with no fanfare, with the bare hum of "Ready Lets Go" blossoming into the soporific, hypnotic.
Released 18 February 2002. Geogaddi is a tapestry of strange contrasts. Sweeping synths, crunchy drum patterns and the distorted voices of children weave in and out to create a surreal 'third place'. The ruminant paranoia evident in "Dawn Chorus" is as hypnotic as it is disorienting.
Album · 2002 · 23 Songs. Four years after their 1998 breakthrough, Music Has the Right to Children, the Scottish duo pushed even further with Geogaddi. Zigzagging between found-sound sketches, out-of-body ambient floaters, and murky instrumental hip-hop, it’s darker and more adventurous. On 1969 and Music Is Math, their trademark breaks are bathed in a vivid swirl, while their synth programming takes the lead on the tabla-laced Alpha and Omega. Most impressive is its kaleidoscopic churn: In the spirit of '70s planetarium soundtracks, it’s less an album than a state of mind. Geogaddi Boards of Canada.
