More information has come to light since the mysterious Boards of Canada 12-inch was found on Record Store Day in New York City. A second one was found in London, England, followed by a couple snippets were played on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio show and NPR Radio, and some mysterious YouTube uploads were also found along the way.
Fans have already uncovered four sets of numbers through the mystery vinyl, the YouTube clips and the clips played on radio. But FACT reports more findings from Boards of Canada’s unofficial fan message board Twoism:
They updated their YouTube playlist, moving three videos from their 1995 Twoism to the top of the list.
A user on that site noticed one of the banners was changed to incorporate a static pattern shape, similar to one of the recently found videos.
Upon clicking on the .gif image via a text-editing program, two Soundcloud links featuring music buried within static is found, along with new diagrams. They are both titled ∑. Check it out here and here.
When “∑” + “∑” played together , they sound like what was previously found and also contain the number 628315. Listen to it below.
NPR revealed the sequence order currently resembles —— / 628315 / 717228 / 936557 / —— / 519225, and the code number 699742 during a recent broadcast, without placing it in sequence.
Fans found this code when placing the banner into a text editor:

The word “Cosecha” appears a number of times, after a paragraph of coding jargon came up from a Mac source folder. This now appears to be the title of the forthcoming album.
