Description:

Packaged in a custom made book bound gatefold sleeve and numbered insert. “Stereo Magic (portal in 13 parts)” is the new studio album by Randall Frazier’s project Orbit Service and follow up to the stunning 2011’s deep, melancholic “A Calm Note From The West” is set for release and a N. American tour on September 10, 2016 with The Legendary Pink Dots. Orbit Service have produced an even more emotional, sometimes cathartic album of spacy electronics, ambient, drones, collages, almost heart wrenching rhythms, intertwined with Frazier’s spot on vocal delivery and lyrics. This is the kind of album that sucks you in deeper and deeper with every listen. What is next? Another plane of orbits? The album includes contributions from Antenna, Armchair Migraine Journey, Ty Hodson and Dead Voices on Air. File under electronic psychedelia bliss with a dash of good ole loner psych bedroom weirdness.

“With the sounding of a solemn phalanx of horns, Orbit Service begins its lonely patrol around the innermost sanctums of its own dark soul." - Splendid

Description:
The first 1000 are in a 5 color gatefold boardstock sleeve. What if the star baby at the end of '2001: A Space Odyssey' was the product of Thom Yorke and Roger Waters? Orbit Service at your service. Wish you were here... An altruistic dark side of the moon proposition, Eta Carinae is a star 120-150 times the size of our own sun that lies a mere 7000+ light years from this island Earth. Discovered by no less than Edmond Halley his bad self in the late 17th century, Eta Carinae has been observed to fluctuate between telescopic and naked eye proportions over the past 3 centuries. Eta Carinae is in the last throes of its long life, with only about another 100,000 or so years to go before a likely supernova. It seems fitting that one of the most majestic and awesome of the celestial bodies should be serenaded by someone. Orbit Service have certainly taken space, the atom mother, to heart in this progressive ode. And like the star in their eyes the album expands and contracts from white hot to blue cool. The resultant cosmic astro-dirge howls in a bubbly flurry of electro-buzz and slowly pulsing drumbeats. Vocal whispers rise into muted wails, pushing against the very fabric of firmament itself before being drawn back into the gaseous miasma of the star-field. Violence and silence interlaced, as in the life of a sun. Or in the life of a son.  The lyrics cast  shadowon the stuff of terra firma and of the heart as well, making this just as much about inner space. Orbit Service's cris de coeur  is a shaded psychedelic parallectrogram that almost answers the question: what if the star baby at the end of '2001: A Space Odyssey' was the product of Thom York and Roger Waters?. Orbit Service at your service. Wish you were here...

Description:

BlRR Recommended! Twilight, mastered by Grammy-award-winning engineer Matt Sandoski, explores dark, brooding territory with near-telepathic interplay. Seamless from start to finish, this eleven-song cycle sustains an ominous, slow-loping ambience suitable for doomsday -- or at least a rainy-morning shag. Armed with copious electronics and a Tibetan singing bowl, Orbit serves up a squeezebox-driven lament that recalls 16 Horsepower ("Dark Orange Sunset"), plus a scathing lesson in emotional economics ("Minutes, Dollars, Days"). Standout track "Thought You Should Know" pits memory, love and insomnia in a three-way showdown that would make the Flaming Lips proud. -John La Briola
