Enjoyed your blog post but it seems you pasted the final section twice. Now I'm off to play Chill Out and COW back to back.

Ha. No I didn't, but it was meant to be.

COW is a 10/10

three years pass...

after a really stressful week of world based chaos (mk2 trying to get home from cambodia and all that jazz), the orb live album is really hitting the spot.
i think i need to rediscover the orb over the next few weeks/months.

COW is a much better album than I remembered

Forcing Fehlmann to make music without the metronomic kickdrum results in some pretty interesting moments.

OTM. I think it gives his loops more room to play out, interact with each other, shape the evolution of the track.

having heard fehlmanns lagos album, which is good but takes a while to get going, i tend to agree.

COW is a phenomenal album. Only listened to it out of curiosity via namechecking KLF's Chill Out. It does actually live up to that comparison, despite being a different kettle of fish

they have a new one today, Fehlmann isn't on it but apparently it's quite good

yeah this one is real nice, it's the album that "Towers of Dub" hinted at but was never made. "Afros, Afghans, and Angels" is one the best pure ambient tracks I've ever heard from them. lead single is totally misleading

major Katamari Damacy/Sega Dreamcast vibes on "Queen of Hearts"
