about

Re-release of Ubzorb's self-titled debut, originally released on Cordhead Recordings. Includes selected songs from a limited edition album released at Burning Man, 2004.

"One cool tune on this record is track 5, Size Mick , the chorus: Seismic waves and Cosmic Rays/destroy the maze... Cool, huh, so California. Apocalyptic visions of a California bursting at the seams, earthquakes, fire, death, destruction constant reference to May 15...something bad is going to happen then, probably in 2012. In this sort of esoteric, ethereal vein, UBZORB have come out with a self-titled CD, on Cordhead Recordings, a wonderful delight. The songs are all, at an average of 5 minutes, hypnotic jams; a dance-y beat keeps time throughout, intermingled with real drums, which adds more of a humanistic touch. Also, instead of just a modern-day equivalent of a Mellotron, they have actual instruments, a sitar, violins, etc. all played by someone called Rama. Then there is the Voice, the icing, as it were, on top of the synergy of the rest of the music. Dorian, that s what she calls herself, this woman who brings the music to life with that voice of hers. All in all a tight album- it probably will creep into some clubs here and there, albeit in remixed form- I would bet on it. Some of the better cuts include the aforementioned Size Mick , Zeus Magnet and Fogdom . There s even an interesting cover of Bizarre Love Triangle , seemingly altered to appear more of one who s in love, rather than one who s jaded and doesn t give a damn anymore. Check out more about the band by going straight to their website:(http://www.ubzorb.com or http://www.cordhead.com)"
