The Orb released new LP ft Hollie Cook, Jah Wobble & more, announce North American tour
Chillout pioneers The Orb, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary all this year, recently released No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds, which features contributions from Youth, Roger Eno, Hollie Cook, Jah Wobble (who played on their ambient classic “Blue Room”), and Guy Pratt. This is an Orb-in-a-nutshell record, featuring some of their poppiest moments to date (like “Rush Hill Road” featuring Hollie Cook), as well as cut-and-paste dub experiments, ambient stretches and more. You can stream the whole thing, and watch videos for “Rush Hill Road” and “Pillow Fight @ Shag Mountain,” below.
The Orb bring their favorites-filled 30th anniversary tour to North America in November, beginning with a show at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere Hall on 11/3. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, August 10 at noon.
Speaking of Jah Wobble, he and his band Invaders of the Heart play Elsewhere on October 26 with “special guest” (and frequent Wobble collaborator) Bill Laswell, plus Mal Devisa opening (tickets).
