Moving Targets), Orbit plays crunchy and tuneful
songs that target a generic rock audience.
Orbit's debut EP La Mano (Lunch, 1995) contained the minor hit
Libido Speedway (A&M, 1996) is a cunningly derivative album, despite
singer Jeff Lowe Robbins' efforts to turn the music on beyond Paul Westerberg's
de rigueur passion.
The songs are catchy and energetic, just a bit too dejavu.
Medicine sounds like a medley of Pixies' songs.
Yeah charges with boogie guitars and soars with Smashing Pumpkins-ian
Bicycle Song recycles Nirvana's Teen Spirit.

Amp has plenty of punk-rock's fury and noise
(and a bit of Byrds in the guitars), and the
psychotic rock and roll of Why You Won't actually does strike a chord
Last but not least,
Carnival, Rockets, Wake Up showcase enough melodrama
and the ballad Nocturnal Autodrive has enough atmosphere
to provide Orbit with a second career, should the first one as grunge
It will take five years to release a second album,
XLR8R (Lunch, 2001).
Robbins and bassist Linda Bean started a new band, Well.
