Orville Peck

I enjoy the Twin Peaks-vibe "Dead of Night" carries but haven't given the album much of a listen yet. His voice also reminds me of Adam Klopp of Choir Boy and Joel Gibb of The Hidden Cameras for some reason...and maybe a little Roy Orbison?

I am in love.

My obsession of the month.

Those eyes... Seeing the mouth was an extra treat in the Dead of Night video.

I think the Sia mask gimmick is a bit extra but I’m surprised he’s already signed to Sub Pop. He’s gonna blow up.
I thought more Prince... much sexier, but I recall Sia with a cowboy hat. Barf.
Yes: Super warm, resonant voice in a surprisingly wonderful musical template, like a mellow Roy Orbison meets a quaalude Chris Isaak?

No: The Cousin It/Sia Furler cosplay.

Conclusion: Fuck it, lemme follow this.

oh wait i've met him before I forgot lol oops

"Roses are Falling" is the tune I keep going back to, bar the singles. The part where he talks is a bit cringe (I think Devendra Banhart does it quite well in "Shabop Shalom") but I like his voice backed with that melody.

I was planning to see him play at a small venue in Seattle but tickets just sold out!
I posted on his Instagram that I’d love to see him play in some stark hollow town at the Carson City line and he “liked it”. Swoon...

This is his old band by the way:

Something completely different tho.
