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.

i could copy and paste my review for yearling onto this album
its a great work and perfect to listen to on a long walk or just sitting on your bed, staring at the ceiling.
it can get haunting at times (arrow drawn) fair warning. this is a melancholy album.
but that doesn't retract from its rating. its a superb album and i recommend it to all.

Very strong album with cohesive tracks that build to the larger ideal of the album. If you are a Dntel fan than you will definitely like his music in this project.
