Orchid Tapes announces Mister Lies album

Blake Gillespie

After 2013’s Mowgli on Lefse, Mister Lies surprised fans by announcing in May that his next record would be Orchid Tapes, this year’s indie label du jour with universally-lauded releases by Bilinda Butchers, Ricky Eat Acid, and Alex G.

While the Flood You/Medusa digital single aligned Nick Zanca’s sound closer to the heady-IDM-offset-by-club-play guilty pleasures that we’ve come to love from The Range, the first single from Mister Lies’ Orchid Tapes debut, “Deepend”, carries an emotional weight that is reserved for soundtracking moments of existential crisis and loss. Zanca’s whispery vocals ache out “you’re homesick for a hell” like it’s being sung from the bottom of a well, right before a lush passage of blips and violins sweep through the framework. “Deepend” gives us the impression Zanca has been listening to The Notwist’s Neon Golden a great deal and understands the difference between its lasting worth and the dangers of veering too close to The Postal Service.

Mister Lies’ Shadow LP is out October 28 on Orchid Tapes and can be pre-ordered here.
