The Orb's COW / Chill Out, World!

Hi everyone,

I love me some Orb, always have. Darker or lighter in mood and feeling, these guys know how to find a groove and follow it all sorts of cool places. So there is their new album, and I want to quote here what says about it:

Ambient techno legends the Orb spent much of 2016 touring the world to commemorate the 25th anniversary of their seminal debut album, The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld. During their travels, they engaged in several impromptu recording sessions, piecing together field recordings captured on tour, samples from records found at thrift stores, and highlights from their gigs.

So this is one of those albums put together while on tour, which sometimes works out really well, because the artists are in the creative head, and things just kind of cohere in new ways. This album is really fun. Super smart groovy fun. The sounds of a band really working together, inspired and delighted. Enjoy!
