orchid-tapes
The Brooklyn-based label Orchid Tapes has, as of last week, been in existence for four years, so at this point, it’s waddling around like a toddler with no sense of mortality. Lucky for us, its legs seem pretty strong. This Yohuna track,Badges, comes off the upcoming O-Tapes compilation,Boring Ecstasy, set for release this spring.Badges offers up a nice slice of pillow-pop framed by Johanne Swanson’s floating vocals, a burbling keyboard and just-artificial-enough percussion ticks. You can catch the Orchid Tapes label showcase on March 29 at Brooklyn’s Shea Stadium. Listen toBadges and check out theBoring Ecstasy tracklist (via the FADER) below.
