Issue 63 Magazine & Vinyl Bundle
We are delving deep into the cosmic ultraworld of The Orb for this month’s cover story, as we ready ourselves for the release of ‘Abolition Of The Royal Familia’, the forthcoming new album from chill-out superstar Alex Paterson and his current accomplice Michael Rendall. Expect the unexpected – as always with The Orb – but for health and safety reasons we really must give you advance warning of the dog in the spacesuit.
Elsewhere this issue, Kris Needs remembers the one and only Andrew Weatherall, who sadly died last month at the age of just 56, and we look at Tangerine Dream’s ‘Zeirraffer’ exhibition at The Barbican in London. We also have interviews with Fila Brazilla, Nicolás Jaar, Sink Ya Teeth, The Pictish Trail and Juniore, while Adamski talks us through his influences and Jimi Tenor tells the story of his 1994 accidental hit ‘Take Me Baby’. Plus, of course, several million album reviews and a whole lot more besides.
Look into our eyes, look into our eyes, look into our eyes…
We also have a fantastic seven-inch single with two top quality Orb tracks to accompany the magazine. On one side is ‘Hawk Kings (Oseberg Buddhas Buttonhole)’, an homage to Stephen Hawking and one of the many highlights of ‘Abolition Of The Royal Familia’. Flip the record over for ‘Golden Clouds’, which features Lee “Scratch” Perry on vocals and is described by Paterson as “a Jamaican version of ‘Little Fluffy Clouds'”. It’s 30 years since the original track came out, but we guarantee that unforgettable little melody will still send shivers down your spine.
As with all of our seven-inch releases, this record is strictly limited and only available to readers of Electronic Sound, so make sure you grab your copy while you can.
