    Slag Boom Van Loon - So Soon

    When this album landed on my desk, I picked it up, took a glance at the sleeve and quickly clutched it to my chest whilst scanning the office for anyone giggling, as emblazoned upon the shiny jewel case was a little black sticker that looked like it said 'includes remixes by Boards Of Canada'...was this a sick office prank? No sir. Christmas come early for Tom. The entire album is crammed with a feast of beautiful electro-dub and fragmented glitchy beats, with remix contributions from Coil, matmos, Pole, ┬Á-ziq, Four Tet and two slices of sonic poetry from the Boards themselves. A chin stroker for the heads? Perhaps. The future of chill-out? Definitely.
