Instrumental version of electronic music can sound very very wrong and cheesy. But this cover of Everything you do is a Balloon by Board of Canada is just incredible. A Real labour of love that made me realize that the original song is really not just pretty synths and dreamy samples. It’s really fascinating to see the raw melodies separated like that. They also manage to keep a lot of the weirdness and energy of the original song. Amazing job.
And if you’d like more instrumental Boards of Canada Cover : the classical band stargaze often cover BoC live. They sound really good and there are many videos on youtube This mix by ‘la blogotheque’ contains good recordings of two of their covers : EYDIAB (@ 13min 50s) and Nlogax / Turquoise Hexagon Sun @ (1h 36min). Go check that out !
