    The preponderance of the material here creates its own world, on its own terms, and beckons you to go inside. And you will.

    Orcas at first seems nondescript (and as such works well as background music, if your foreground is, let's say, a wintry gazebo), but it's an album one 'finds' after repeated close listens.

    Orcas provides much to engage fans of both Irisarri and Pioulard, as well as lovers of languid, abstracted pop song craft.

    Undeniably beautiful. Aloof, abstract and elegant, it melds ambient expanse with pop form to idyllic, if unassuming effect.

    An enjoyable creation that, despite its clear roots, has its own logic and general aesthetic.

    While Orcas hits on a heavier emotional level than I'd initially expected, that tendency to drift does endure on repeated listens.
