The Orchids Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
The poor old Orchids returned to the world a good few years after falling off the face of the earth, ready to inflict their twee pop woes onto the world: sadly, their mainstay label Sarah Records didn't exist anymore, so they had to deal with some new indie pop ventures. 'Beatitude #9' is their third record since they got back together in 2007, and continues to update their sweet, heartbroken brand of twee theatrics.
Oh those lovely Orchids. This is a fantastic round up of the best bits of the Sarah Records mainstays career alongside a whole CD of demos and outtakes. The band have a unique and lovelorn take on Scottish indie pop which in a perfect world would have them cited alongside Orange Juice and Teenage Fanclub as Great Scottish Bands. Get on board.
