Interview With The Orb
AMBIENT HOUSE PIONEERS GO DUB
Ambient house pioneers The Orb are back with a new album. Recorded in Berlin, More Tales From The Orbservatory – their twelfth studio long-player – features Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry on lead vocals as Dr. Alex Paterson and long-time Orb member Thomas Fehlmann construct a panorama of stripped-down, dubbed-up backdrops for the Upsetter’s inimitable pronouncements and righteous declarations.
You can hear album opener Fussball in our in-site boombox and see the video below. The Orb will be heading out on an extensive UK tour in October.
