Lotus – ‘Orchids’ – (The Album Leaf Remix)

For a nice midweek pick-me-up, check out this remix of ‘Orchids’ by The Album Leaf.  The original tune is from Philadelphia-based electro/post rock band Lotus who explained why they asked Jimmy LaValle to rework this song: “During the summer of 2010 we played 3 shows with the band and met Jimmy LaValle (the main mind behind The Album Leaf). His compositions have a unique ability to bring a very human and affecting element to music that is steeped in electronics. We decided he should remix one of the least electronic compositions from the Lotus album “Orchids.” LaValle created a mix that combines the lush strings and guitars of the original with The Album Leaf’s signature approach to atmosphere and beat to create a track that invokes a sepia-filtered, cinematic nostalgia.”  Well said, and well done.
