Review - Lowflow

Artist: Thomas Fehlmann

Label: Plug Research
Media: CD
Format: Album
WorkNameSort: Lowflow

Though much of Fehlmann's solo work (that work which is beyond his contributions to The Orb) pushes a somewhat predictable sound, the baker's dozen of tracks on Lowflow are more in line with his groundbreaking ambient work. That's not to say that this is half an Orb record; it's probably double an Orb record, eschewing wispy throb for futuristic atmospherics and glitchy funk that combine for a rhythmically challenging and sonically engaging disc.
