Cities' breaks


THREE Cities, the second album from Bombay Dub Orchestra, is a cosmopolitan affair.
Production duo Garry Hughes and Andrew T Mackay have again melded western chillout electronica with Indian influences and instrumentation, a formula that served the pair well on their self-titled debut.
It was a nice idea, and therefore everything here is, as a result, well, nice.
The beats are competent, chilled and conservative, and the melodies are restrained and relaxing.
The result is an album you could imagine playing in the chill-out room of a banging Bombay club - although but's more likely to be played on a portable stereo at a stall selling incense sticks, bongs and novelty rastafarian ashtrays at a music festival near you this summer.
