The Orb Announces New Album ‘Moonbuilding 2703 AD’

By  | 

Pioneering electronic duo The Orb are returning this summer with Moonbuilding 2703 AD, a new LP for Kompakt Records.

As a follow-up to The Orb’s 2005 album Okie Dokie It’s The Orb On Kompakt on the label, the new album sees the eccentric pair delivering a “major piece of pschedelic synth bliss, obscure loops, and deep ambient textures, driven by swinging breakbeats and powerful basslines.” The album features only four tracks, but each song serves a “mini epic” with track lengths averaging over 12 minutes each. Additionally, fans will receive different bonus tracks depending on if they purchase the deluxe download edition or the vinyl release.
