Music Has the Right to Dishes

The Dishes Project was on vacation for a few weeks, but now it's back in business.

Boards of Canada
Album: Music Has the Right to Children
Released in: 1998

This album was very well-received critically. But all I really think about when I think of Boards of Canada is the song Roygbiv. The youtube recording can't do justice to its beauty (and for god's sake don't actually watch the hideous fan-made video), but it might give some idea of the atmosphere. Sweet, nostalgic, warm, with a melody that captures the essence of childhood happiness. One of my favorite tracks of all time.

(All right. I admit it. The rest of the album is pretty good, too.)

I could have worn punky outfits. I could have sung that song. It would have been great.
