Hi Scores is an EP by Boards of Canada. Released on CD and vinyl in 1996, it was subsequently re-released in 1998, 2002, and 2005. It constitutes Boards of Canada's second official release since 1995's Twoism. The track "Turquoise Hexagon Sun" would later find its way on to Boards of Canada's seminal Music Has the Right to Children.

Hi Scores Trivia

  • "Nlogax" contains a sample of Indeep's 1983 hit "Last Night a D.J. Saved My Life."
  • It has been suggested that the "hi" of "hi scores could refer to the initials of BoC's alias Hell Interface.
  • The Braille on the label: Some have interpreted it as having typos. In fact, it is quite correct. If you read it using a simple alphabetic Braille chart, you get "bo?ds ? canada", where the "?" represent characters not found on the chart. Numbering the dots in column one from top down as 1,2,3, and column two as 4,5,6, the two odd characters are 3-4-5 and 1-2-3-5-6, and reference to a more complete braille listing reveals that the first of these symbols stands for the letter pair [ar], and the second represents the word [of], so the sticker does indeed read "boards of canada".
