RIYL: King Dude, Daughn Gibson, Cameron Avery

Label: Sub Pop

Similar to Sub Pop brother Daughn Gibson, Orville Peck has his own hybrid of Americana, combining the lone drifter blues of his outlaw country forefathers with a surreal dreamy ambience you’d find in a David Lynch film or at a dusty old diner on the edge of Twin Peaks.  Clad in a cowboy hat and fringe-laden leather face mask, you might possibly even find Orville in one of those Lynch films, slinking in the dark corner of the smoky lounge.

On the two available tracks, Big Sky and Dead of Night, Peck’s vocals are as buttery as they are menacing.  His incredible lower register prowls along the electric lead like a shifting shadow in a dark alley, but his falsetto mimics the silky soul-stirring warble of a young Roy Orbison.  This could be one of the most promising debuts Sub Pop has put out in quite a while.  I can’t wait to hear the whole album!  A limited supply of ‘Loser Edition’ colored vinyl is available after the ‘buy’ link.  Check out the available tracks below.
