O R C A S is the self-titled debut full-length album from American dreampop duo Orcas. Pallor Cedes. Arrow Drawn. Standard Error. A Subtle Escape. Until Then Broadcast cover. Certain Abstractions. I Saw My Echo. High Fences. Benoît Pioulard - vox, guitars, piano, glockenspiel, field recordings, warnophone & harmonium. Rafael Anton Irisarri - laptop, guitars, bass & sampler. Additional Personnel: Jesy Fortino - vocal samples on Standard Error and Certa. Orcas comprised of haze-pop auteur Benoît Pioulard and post-minimalist composer Rafael Anton Irisarri is an imaginative return to that narrative. Theirs is a style deeply rooted in personal variations on songform and ambient craft, and as a duo they bridge the furthest outlying aspects of their previous solo work published on Kranky, Touch, Miasmah, Room40, and Ghostly International. Here song and abstraction become one entity, condensing the spaces between to generate an arching trajectory. Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Purchasable with gift card. Buy Digital Album. 7 EUR. The album generally meets them, an enjoyable creation that, despite its clear roots, has its own logic and general aesthetic. Pallor Cedes begins the album with a kind of demi-glitch approach to rhythm, clipped guitar noise and rising and falling drones settling in behind a slow, acoustic guitar melody and calm, slightly yearning vocals, themselves turning into a call and response collage of their own. Ticking another one off the list, they join forces as Orcas for this modest, entrancing Morr Music debut, which sounds in reality exactly how it sounds on paper: nocturnal ambient pop in the manner of Eluvium's Similes, if Similes had benefited from the same rugged grandeur as Copia. The most distinctive and consistent feature of Meluch's music is his sedate yet expressive voice, which moves like something heavy underwater, complacently drowning Like coming up for air, he intones repeatedly on the hesitantly skipping Pallor Cedes.

Exactly a year ago, at the end of September of 2011, at 8th edition of Seattle’s Decibel Festival, I was lucky enough to attend a world premiere of a live performance by Orcas. Back then I only knew that Orcas was a project consisting of Benoît Pioulard and Rafael Anton Irisarri. Pioulard, of course, is a moniker of Thomas Meluch, with EPs, singles and album releases on Kranky, Desire Path, Type, and People In A Position To Know. While Irisarri has released multiple albums under his real name on Miasmah, Room40, and Immune, as well as two albums on Ghostly International under The Sight Below alias. So, yes, going into the above mentioned performance I already knew that I was about to witness a new and exciting affair from two of my favorite artists. What I didn’t know, is that the self-titled debut would eventually make it onto Thomas Morr’s Morr Music, a trend-setting Berlin-based label responsible for output by ISAN, múm, Styrofoam, and many others.

On Orcas, the duo lays down blissful ambient passages, complimented by delicate guitars, minimal electronics, and Pioulard’s lulling voice. The group also invites Kelly Wyse to play on the piano [Wyse has previously worked with Irisarri on Reverie (Immune, 2010)], and Simon Scott to contribute additional guitars and Max/MSP treatments. The rest of production credits include Irisarri for recording and mixing the album, as well as Lawrence English for mastering. All of the tracks on the album are original, except the amazing cover of Broadcast‘s “Until Then”. This particular piece has been stuck in my head for days now, maybe because every now and then I play the melody on my baby grand. The compositions on Orcas follow an introspective trajectory, floating between enchanting dream-drone chords and subtle, yet textural, sonic ebb. Pioulard’s vocals gently hover above the surface of each track, slightly obscured by his own barely whispering octave-high duet. Together, Pioulard and Irisarri perfectly compliment each other in this new pinnacle of post-drift-gaze-haze-pop, on which soaring ambiance meets lullaby songs.

For more from these two fantastic musicians, may I recommend Pioulard’s Précis (Kranky, 2006), Temper (Kranky, 2006), and Lasted (Kranky, 2010), as well as Irisarri’s Daydreaming (Miasmah, 2007), The North Bend (Room40, 2010); and Glider (Ghostly, 2008), It All Falls Apart (Ghostly, 2010) as The Sight Below. This year, Orcas will perform at Decibel Festival during Optical 4: Discreet Tones showcase, along with Nils Frahm, Sylvain Chauveau, and CFCF, with visuals by Leo Mayberry, Sean Curtis Patrick, and even Christina Vantzou! Irisarri will also perform as The Sight Below at Optical 3: Touch30 showcase, along with Eleh, Biosphere, and lissom. I have to admit, all of the Optical showcases look absolutely fantastic this year, and you can bet that I’ll be present at each and every one of them!

Back in Seattle, at the end of September of 2011, after Orcas’ world premier live performance, drunk on good wine and beautiful music, I ran back into the green room, and half slurring my words exclaimed into Rafael’s bewildered and exhausted composure, “that… that was just magical!” Rafael looked at me, smiled and said “Oh, shut the hell up!” Little did he know, I meant those few drunken words… ;)
