Music Alert: Orbr – So Incognito

Time for another Orbr single!

Say hello to the stripped down funk aesthetic of So Incognito, a love letter to Reprazent’s jungle jazz opus New Forms.

This time we head back to the ’60s for a brush with danger. Is she a spy? An agent provocateur? A double agent? Whatever she is, she’s in a hurry!

So Incognito is available everywhere fine music is sold. You can also hear it on my Bandcamp, YouTube, and SoundCloud channels.

And of course you can stream or purchase any Orbr song at orbrsounds.com.

Enjoy!

Dragons And Jewels: The Kingdom of Lone

My first exposure to Lone was the refreshing and delightful (if slightly half-baked) Emerald Fantasy Tracks from 2010. Like so many of my electronic albums, I have absolutely no idea how I stumbled upon it. I’m so glad I did. Galaxy Garden, his follow up collaboration with Machinedrum, made it into my top 20 favorite albums of all time. I’ve been a devoted fan ever since.
