♫♪  The Orchardist - “Oraccu Water Box pt. I ‘Liquid Crystal Enters Freshly Fertilized Turtle Egg’”

Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow on Premiere Ops, and boy am I flowing with this one! Is this chill? Is this mellow? Am I “losing it”? None of these questions are likely to be answered when you tune in to this new video from the mysterioso miscellany of The Orchardist. Chilean label Nonlocal Society is handling the physical and digital release of Mercury Vineyard Surgeries, and, wouldn’t you know, it’s being released today of all days. Adjectives and clever wordplay can only get me so far in this life, but my instincts are telling me to shut it and just let this video speak for itself. The tune, including visuals, are equally tripped out, soothing, and ever so slightly unsettling. Dig deep into The Orchardist, and let your mind wander to far-off, uncharted terrain.

If releasing a new album weren’t enough, The Orchardist is heading out on a US tour in April and May. This is no low-key, three-city event. They’re heading from Portland, ME to Portland, OR and hitting village sand townships along the way. Check the dates below.
