Orbital, 1 / 2: As has so often been the case with techno-dance artists from the UK, Orbital never came anywhere near to matching their UK chart success in the US, to the point where you’d be hard pressed to find all that many Americans who even know who they are, but if you’ve got a soft spot for dance music that uses unique samples and delivers songs that are memorable enough to keep you interested even when the majority of their tracks top out well beyond the five-minute mark, you’ll want to investigate their first two albums – cleverly entitled 1 and 2 – and hear how great they sound when reissued on 180-gram vinyl.
Everyone should have at least one Joy Division record in their arsenal, but why not aim for all four? For those keeping score, that would be the two studio albums, the (mostly) live one, and the compilation. Now that you're in the know, follow the Best of Joy Division playlist in Spotify and you could win a deluxe Joy Division 180-gram vinyl pack featuring UNKNOWN PLEASURES, CLOSER, STILL, and SUBSTANCE, complete with sleeves replicating the originals in painstaking detail.
