Review

Recorded between 1979 and 1983, Orior's visionary ambient music never really made it onto the big stage. But, if you think about it, this is more than normal given exactly how far ahead this stuff was compared to everything else back then. I mean, seriously, even the opener "Larbico" is just as fresh and provocative as any of the abstract electronic music coming out today through labels like Touch, Editions Mego or Spectrum Spools. There's a gorgeous lo-fi feel in the grainy, cavernous air created by Jeff Sharp's languishing drones, and we are just simply amazed at how far-out this is, and how long ago it was made. The real stunner is "Earth Rhythm", though, a mechanic drum machine cut with a gorgeous blend of baselines and tropical melancholia. This is LP of the week for us; A totally killer and unmissable reissue!! Oh, and this is out courtesy of the Demdike Stare massive. Recommended!
