Light Years From Home
Orbital Express formed in 2007 and became a force on the local rock scene, noted for chaotic live performances and heavy songs. This is the group’s second LP, with a lineup of Adam Ennis (drums/lead vocals), Roberto Giannini (guitar/vocals), Drew Duchscher (guitar), and Matthew Fraser (bass/vocals). They’ve expanded their borders and played alongside international standouts like Black Mountain, Lion Eyes, Stratovarius (Finland), Monotronix (Israel). The record is a heady distillation of the band’s wild energy, alternately sincere and darkly ironic, tied together by the inevitable colossus of fuzz and drums. Recorded at: Blue Door Recording, Regina. Produced by: Byron Chambers and Orbital Express.
