RIYL: Sabbath riffage, Syd Barrett weirdness
Label: Castle Face Records (US) & Flightless Records (Australia)
After a successful 7″ by way of Flightless Records, Australian 3-piece psych wizards ORB have officially released their debut full-length Birth to the world. Â Muddy guitar riffage,Â effects pedals and magical studio tamperings are in abundance here. Â The results sound like an electronically-inspired Black Sabbath fronted by original Pink Floyd weirdo Syd Barrett, a band with a knack for heavy,Â lacerating bangersÂ and a desire to beÂ unique from the rest of the herd. Â Prepare yourself for a cerebral rock and roll happening courtesy of the brothers ORB.
As many of you probably already knew, the always-badass Flightless Records in Australia threw this album up for preorder a few months ago, and their colorway is a deep blue with a sewer green splatter, limited to 500. Â Those can still be purchasedÂ HERE, but It’ll unfortunately run you over $40 to have it shipped to the states. Â So,Â if you’re a greasy yank like myself, the Castle Face version is a much cheaperÂ alternative. Â Who are we kidding, though…I bet most of you are gonna buy both versions. Â You’re all sick, you know that? Â SICK.
A ripping debut from these young Australians, and I hear there's plans to come to the States soon too.
Toxic Pool Edition vinyl is limited to 2 per customer.
