Comments

  • "House Of Abin'adab" most likely refers to a biblical house in which the ark of the covenant was stored for a length of time.[1] It has been speculated that the track name instead refers to Ahinadab, an officer appointed to the district of Mahanaim[2] (a biblical location referenced in another Boards of Canada track). However, this appears to be a coincidence, as a scan of the track listing of Old Tunes Vol. 1 clearly shows "Abin'adab" and not "Ahin'adab".
  • This track bears a resemblance to the extract of "Circle" from the early release Hooper Bay.
