Doughnuts Forever


The Orb have a new single out ahead of an album in June, titled Doughnuts Forever- which makes it seem a bit throwaway- and the track seemed a bit lightweight at first but repeated listens have revealed its charms. It works its magic slowly, bringing the bass in over piano chords, then heading into Avalanches territory.



The Orb are celebrating their 30th birthday this year, Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlman and whoever else they can get into the studio with them. For this album, No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds, Alex has brought together a stellar cast including Youth, Roger Eno, Hollie Cook and Jah Wobble all of which makes it look like it might be worth looking out for.

Personally I think doughnuts are overrated. Even Randy's.

I have listened to thiss a few times and have been debating whether to pre-order the album, stupid debate really as it is only a matter of time before I cave-in, I've got everything else they've done so it's inevitable but at 25 quid + pp it's a rather expensive album but aren't they all these days.

How can someone so right about music be so wrong about doughnuts?

It's a conundrum.
