One last mp3 for today

Boards of Canada, "XYZ"

A Peel Session track never officially released by Warp- a shame, since it's one of BoC's best. Their usual lush synth chords and tweaked vocal samples eventually give way to some surprisingly heavy, chopped-up beats and backwards guitar snippets (later used in their Beatles-homage remix of cLOUDDEAD's "Dead Dogs Two"). "XYZ" leans a bit more toward their Geogaddi-era sound than Music Has the Right ("Alpha and Omega" particularly, and some of the other more obviously psychedelic tracks), but it's not as dark or heavy.
