Pomme Fritz (Remastered 2CD) (EP)
by The Orb
Released: Jul 1994
This EP from 1994 was originally a bit off-putting when it was released. Within a two-year period, the group had gone from creating acclaimed, extraterrestrial dub albums to odd, largely beat-free songs about food. Maybe it was indeed a case of Syd Barrett-esque madness, but the layered samples and dense melodies here still intrigue and resonate. This 2008 edition is remastered and contains a second disc's worth of rare remixes.
