TL;DR

A mysterious Boards of Canada record was found at Other Music records in New York City. The cover reads simply as follows:

BOARDS OF CANADA

------ / ------ / ------ / XXXXXX / ------ / ------

The bottom of the cover bears a copyright notice dated "2013 WARP RECORDS LIMITED".

When played, the record contains approximately 40 seconds of audio, consisting primarily of a short set of chimes followed by a computer voice reciting six numbers, similar to a shortwave numbers station (such as the one sampled on "Gyroscope"). The numbers recited are 9 3 6 5 5 7.

Recording of the NYC record

According to a store employee, the record was hand-delivered by a Warp Records representative and is one of only 6 in the world. The rest are said to be all located outside the United States.

The code

The cover symbols, recited numbers and reported number of records suggest a 36-digit code, to be discovered when all 6 releases are found. Assuming the Xs indicate where the numbers on each release go, the partial code is as follows:

------ / ------ / ------ / 936557 / ------ / ------
