Philadelphia-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Christopher Taylor aka Body Meat might be a relative newcomer to the mangled pop electronics game, but there’s a world-weary melancholia in Year of the Orc despite the fact it comes across as a bombastic record. Just when the industrial swagger makes opening track ‘Twigs’ feel like a dark space to occupy, Taylor’s auto-tuned vocal pushes his sound into a sweeter, sunnier space. There’s a modern trap edge to the likes of ‘4700’ and ‘ULTIMA’, sounding like a Future cut sent through a threshing machine — until the ambient, singer-songwriter glow of ‘Ghost’, which features none other than Laraaji, sends things into a different realm completely.
All music written, recorded and produced by Christopher Taylor.
Mastered by Beau Thomas at Ten Eight Seven
Secondary vocals on "Ghost" performed, and recorded by Laraaji
