Review: Boards of Canada – “Trans Canada Highway”

Much of this six-song EP feels like a road marker between larger efforts, a bit of ambiance and Badalamenti-inspired synth-washes to pass the time.

But the album-opening “Dayvan Cowboy” — with its expansive guitar line, swelling faux-strings and shape-shifting percussion that’s scissored through processors — is alone worth the price of admission.

Favorite Track: “Dayvan Cowboy”
