This one is not only my favorite song of theirs, but my favorite song of all time.

I can't remember when I first discovered them, but they'll always be one of my favorites. Their music kind of makes you feel like you're remembering things that never even happened. It's very powerful. Feels kind of weird to try and describe it, though. So, I'll shut up.

What do you think of Tomorrow's Harvest? I finally understood that album lol. For some reason it took me a while.
I really liked Tomorrow's Harvest a lot. It's my third or fourth favourite BoC album (Music Has the Right to Children and The Campfire Headphase are my favourites). Come to Dust, Reach for the Dead, Palace Posy, Jacquard Causeway, Cold Earth, lots of great songs on that album.

Holy ****, I've been listening to BoC for 10 years and haven't heard that first song before. I remember when I first listened to them, I liked An Eagle in Your Mind a lot but found them a bit boring. Yes, I found my favourite band boring. I remember some time later I decided to listen to Music Had the Right to Children out of boredom and I loved it. For months I listened to that album multiple times every day.

There used to be a user-made video on YouTube of that track with a picture of an alien/UFO encounter by a some trucker fixing a tire. I loved it! That track always makes me think of either benevolent Nordic aliens or biology/life lol.

BOC's music feels very cozy to me and makes me feel more connected to the world and nature. It is indeed good at bringing up memories too.
I remember that video too! I was bummed when it was taken down. That imagery fit so perfectly.

Yeah, I don't think there's any other artist that makes me as emotional as these guys.

Well I'm glad you're hearing it now. That track is pretty overwhelming to me in a good way. It's from 'A Few Old Tunes'. I don't remember a ton of stand out tracks from that album, but it has been a while since I listened to both volumes all the way through.



This one is very 'Lone-y' to me. Most of his tracks have this same sort of vibe but much more exaggerated and full of energy for the most part. I guess it might be safe to assume a lot of ambient artists might have drawn some inspiration from BOC.



This is another good one from that album. I can only think of 'Look Around You' when hearing it. I think they used quite a few of BOCs tracks.


I'm trying to think back, and I think the first BOC track I heard was 'Beware the Friendly Stranger' when I was about 15. I used to watch a lot of David Firth's animations and he played this track in his Salad Finger videos. I think I learned about a lot of good music through Firth like Aphex Twin and Animal Collective. Good times.

I have it on my relax playlist. I find I tend to become more thoughtful and more meditative and such.

everything you do is a balloon is the only one i liked. plus... a very weird but important lesson on the roads safety for the video LOl

Waiting for a beam to break through here,
A chain-way vision bright and clear.
This must be it,
Longed for Bliss,
First it was so quiet and now I know I am not alone in here.

I like Everything You Do Is Balloon. I haven't listened to anything else I don't think. I found that track a while back through a Clams Casino track on YouTube that was using the same video.

Some people heard my words and thought it meant they knew me
Truth is, I don't exist, I'm just a soundtrack to your movie
Some background figure in a story that's already scripted
And what I feel's just felt for you to hear me ****ing spit it
I jump in many different heads through these words and poems
Always hoping maybe the next leap'll be my leap home

I love me some BoC. I like a lot of stuff on the IDM / Post-Rock / Ambient / Experimental spectrum. I'm a junkie for all that.

I'm always listening to BoC during spring/summer. I love when I stumble across a track that I haven't listened to before.

Yes! Very much like their music.

I actually made a music video years ago for "Sunshine Recorder" (school project in film class)



As much as you doubt you're a Ninja, it's equally likely that you are one.

I wonder how Nosdam even linked up with them. They must just be anticon-heads or something. They also remixed Nevermen and an old cLOUDDEAD track.



My personal favorite BoC song is Roygbiv.

I love BoC!
Only really started listening to them a few months back. Still got a few others in their discography to listen through.
My favourites so far are Dayvan Cowboy and Reach for the Dead. <3
