Hey y'all.
Here's another springtime mix I threw together. I hope you like it. I'm really braindead from school and preparing for exams so this is gonna be brief, but expect some new fun things soon via Orchid Tapes in the coming weeks, I'm going to have a lot more time on my hands now that I'm finished school. I'm also preparing a brief New York tour for early July. I'll post the dates here after I get more details.

Speaking of schuule, here's a final project in video form that I made for one of my classes at OCAD starring my friend Mia: JUNKY.

Also, for whatever reason I started a Tumblr (mostly for posting the obscene amount of .jpgs that have been accumulating on my harddrive. Hurrr durrr I don't need anymore accounts on the internet, fuck.

All the best,

Drew Michael Hildebrand
August 29th, 1991 - April 8th, 2008
You are the perfect Drew.

My friends and family and I had a ceremony at a cemetery in Oakville this past Thursday to bury the ashes of my brother Drew with a new headstone that was just recently placed there. I was expecting the day to be beyond emotional, but it actually turned out really well, in whatever context. The rain stopped for exact amount of time we were at the cemetery and the sun even came out for a while, showing how beautiful a place like that has the potential to be. I got to see a bunch of old friends and reminisce with them and afterwards everyone came back to my Mom and my house to drink and stay as longmas they wanted. Not too bad at all. I created a new banner from a panorama of two pictures that my friend Amanda took that day.

Some other news from my life as of late; I 'officially' signed a contact with a Brooklyn electronic music label today called Moodgadget. I am really really excited about this. The guy I've been talking to from the label is a really rad guy and seems totally jazzed on what I've been working on. Apart from a slew of stuff coming out on Orchid Tapes soon, there'll be some work (an EP) coming out on Moodgadget in the near future, and a compact disk reissue of Swung from The Branches. Stay tuned, friends.

Also, my aforementioned friend Amanda and I had a chance to share some conversation with Ernest Greene of Washed Out last Wednesday after his set at Wrongbar. Kindest guy ever, it was a great night. s000 chill.
All the best,

New site for Orchid Tapes

If anyone is interested in doing some sort of release under this, send me an email and let me know. There are a few things by friends of mines lined up to be shared there with everybody but I'm always excited to find new people to work with. This may or may not work.

Two summers ago

my friends Mike, Alex and I got together to hang out for the day, in that time I took some photos using my Canon T70 and some Kodak 400 film that I thought turned out really nice and had a fairly uniform feel throughout all of them. I thought I'd share them with you. I hope you like them.

I just got a new Yashica camera earlier this week that I'm hoping I can take out for some kind of fun photo expedition sometime soon and reignite my interest in film photography. I miss the days of being able to develop my photos for free.
