It is a lot to absorb!
Celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, The Orb have always served ravers well by providing the perfect comedown soundtracks.
Founder Alex Patterson and longtime member Thomas Fehlmann’s previous two LPs were streamlined techno efforts, released on German label Kompakt, but this time around theyÕve gone for a looser, lusher, more ‘English’ sound - with a little help from their friends.
Patterson has always worn his dub influences on his sleeve and bassist Jah Wobble comes along for the ride here, bringing the funk on ‘Pillow Fights @ Shag Mountain’, while tracks like ‘Wish I Had a Pretty Dog’ and ‘Wolfsbane’ descend into pure skankable jams.
