Who’s your Geogaddi?
Few albums come as eagerly anticipated as Boards Of Canada‘s Tomorrow’s Harvest, and today we have the chance to hear the whole thing from beginning to end thanks to a live stream over at the band’s site, as announced last week.
As with the morning after Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories stream, we’ll be compiling the best quips, comments and knee-jerk reactions from the wild world of Twitter as they happen. Tag your reactions with #TomorrowsHarvest if you want to be included. Limmy, that means you.
Watch the stream via the YouTube embed above, and read our pick of the comments as they come in below.

Atra Aeterna Hearing the new Boards of Canada while Super Metroid-ing is the modern equivalent of syncing up Dark Side of the Moon with The Wizard of Oz.
MrBeatnick Mathematical formula for twitter crash – BOC x GOT
Thomas Yorke Thank you based BOC!

Charles Bernard about 45m in and this might be the best song yet — understated bass, raindrop-like synths
Benjamin Damage This is a really great album
Tom Robinson Sounds like Peter Gabriel dozing off with his face in a vagina. #TomorrowsHarvest I like it.

Osmio Mayer Are them the real BOC? Don’t think so. We’re kidnapping when this dub-step shit finishes.”

jamesadonner Loving the new Boards Of Canada album so far, but their albums are always growers. I can’t wait to spend more time with #TomorrowsHarvest
Joseph Gelsomini its weird to imagine that so many other people are sitting together watching this at the same time, even if we arent in the same place
CigsUnfounded Like a retro-futurist version of the Metropolis zone from Sonic 2.

RossiuWasGod Warp Records guy here. This album is about Alien Contact in the desert, bringing very 80’s synth into the mix, very movie-ish, very John Carpenter inspired. Enjoy.” [hmm – Ed]
Xilef276 I think we should all relax and thing about this: Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
Yusef Mechaiekh The entire album is going to build up to the last track and the last track will entirely be the filthiest drop in existence.”
Nic Johnny Cadillac Moriarty absolutely divine so far. such delicious analogue. with just the slightest hint of ‘look around you’. not a bad thing at all.
Youckaify The one’s that has been chosen are feeling something right now.
WarpRecords Did @boctransmission break twitter? [Yes – Ed]

LuckyMe the boc chatroom is so incredible. an airport corporate sculpture. a ticker-tape of ‘where’s the drops”
scotochromogen definitely getting a Klaus schulze vibe there
throughsilver Enjoying this #TomorrowsHarvest stream, but I kind of wish it counted as scrobbles on my last.fm. I’m a geek like that.

MrPopDrunk i wonder if boc is watching the comments right now. lets hope not, because that would be creepy
Dudeman162 They should have name their band Boards of the United States.
Dudeman162 Time goes by faster than usual because BoC fans have the ability to ignore time.
Chris Hirst Oh wow, this sounds amazing! Does anyone know if it’s supposed to get louder though?
