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
Love to my sister Chrystal for her words on "My Brother Orchestral". We love and miss you Eddy.
