Orbital – Middle of Nowhere

Orbital – Middle of Nowhere

Niyaz Pirani and Clint Keaton on the digital ones and twos, providing you with music reviews and news!

This week we celebrate Middle of Nowhere by Orbital. The brothers from Kent, England take us on a cosmically eclectic journey into the depths of electronica.

From the abrasive beginnings of Niyaz’s favorite “Know Where to Run,” to the nostalgically blissful ending of Clint’s favorite “Nothing Left,” these tracks start in one place and finish in decidedly and contrastingly different places.

We Pod Sonically is weekly podcast where we retrospectively review one record per show, as well as provide our listeners with current and trending news in the music industry.
