In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country is an EP by Boards of Canada. Encompassing four tracks culled from the same recording sessions from which Boards of Canada would later produce Geogaddi, the EP tends to favor a darker, more pastoral, and even elegiac atmosphere than its predecessor, Music Has the Right to Children.

Although musically the EP is no great stylistic departure for the group, In a Beautiful Place out in the Country does represent a significant change in tone and subject matter. Of particular note are the references in the music and album art reflecting an interest by the brothers in the history of David Koresh’s millennialist sect, the Branch Davidians. The picture found directly beneath the disc on the CD release of the EP, for example, is thought by some to have been cropped from a picture of David Koresh.

The most overt of these references is found in the track title 'Amo Bishop Roden', the real name of a woman who parted ways with Koresh before the 1993 Waco Siege. A less obvious reference to the Davidians is also found in the title track’s mantra “come out and live in a religious community in a beautiful place out in the country,” alleged to be a slogan used by Roden to proselytize for the Davidian sect.

The EP was released originally by Warp Records in both CD (WAP144CD) and 12” (WAP144) formats on November 27, 2000. 2013 reissue.
