Last week was the fourth anniversary of Orchid Tapes, the New York DIY label co-founded by Warren Hildebrand and Brian Vu that, like a snowball rolling from the top of Big Cartel mountain, has picked up increasing speed and energy to careen, these days, with the force of a bedroom pop avalanche. Now, to mark the general unmissable-ness of the label's present, they're putting out Boring Ecstasy, a vinyl compilation featuring a real who's-who of hushed mood-setters. Full tracklist is below. Of the featured artists, Elvis Depressedly, Alex G, Ricky Eat Acid, R.L. Kelly, Home Alone and Four Visions will all play a label showcase on March 29th at Brooklyn's Shea Stadium—look for the 12-inch to go on sale then-abouts. Today, stream Yohuna's "Badges," one of many highlights. Aaaaaaagh.
