SOTD 12.19.09

Scottish eletronic music duo Boards of Canada have been consistently releasing psychedelic, ambient soundscapes since the mid-1980s and have influenced virtually any act that utilizes electronics (yes, including Radiohead). Taking three years to make, 2005's The Campfire Headphase is a meticulously-crafted album that contains today's Song of the Day, the dreamy "Dayvan Cowboy." Accompanying this otherworldly piece is its appropriately surreal music video, which compiles footage of military figure Joe Kittinger's famous parachute jump from 19.5 miles above the earth and surfer Laird Hamilton's masterful handling of the waves. Enjoy both the video and the mp3 below.
