The Orb – Abolition Of The Royal Familia (Cooking Vinyl transparent blue vinyl double LP)
The new album from Electronic Sound cover stars The Orb is a mighty beast of science fiction beats and psychedelic electronica. As we said in our review, the group have taken the blueprint of their 1991 debut ‘Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld’ and given it a 21st century sheen. “I wanted to present it as a double vinyl album, where you could put side one and side three together,” says Dr Alex Paterson. “In that sense, it’s exactly the same as ‘Ultraworld’.” With guest appearances from Roger Eno, Youth, Steve Hillage, Miquette Giraudy and Paterson’s dog Ruby, ‘Abolition Of The Royal Familia’ is quite the trip and is perfect for these troubled times. It’s a double album on transparent blue vinyl, by the way.
