Track Review/Music News:
Foxes In Fiction/Orchid Tapes
Foxes In Fiction, Warren Hildebrand, has released yet another beautiful opus, “Rearrange”. A sample from the forthcoming Orchid Tapes compilation “Boring Ecstasy”, due out March 25th. This will be the first vinyl compilation release for the Brooklyn Label run by Brian Vu and Hildebrand.
It’s not surprising that Foxes In Fiction has made another memorable and beautiful song. But, a great attribute to Hildebrand’s style is his ability to stay with the same aesthetic and show diversity within it. “Rearrange” has an ambient, tonal melody. The guitar chimes give compliment to the dissonance in the harmony and beat. The soft, repetitive, drum, accompanied by a second progression makes “Rearange” livelier and even more delicate in instrumentation. Hildebrand’s dulcet vocals transition the opening of the track beautifully into a warm crackling sound of a Mellotron which preciously folds, as if it were a delicate note to a loved one or hiding in a euphoric pocket of the world underneath blankets, the composition into a subtly abrupt finish.
Having written the chord progression at the age of 19, this exemplifies how Hildebrand has kept the ability to demonstrate diversity inside a similar aesthetic.
“Rearrange” is currently streaming via Orchid Tapes Soundcloud.

It’s pretty tough to avoid turning this site into an Orchid Tapes fan blog considering the label is constantly churning out quality releases. Boring Ecstasy, the upcoming vinyl compilation that this Foxes in Fiction track is pulled from, won’t be an exception.
"Rearrange" is a delicately dreamy track. We’re offered these short splashes of texture with a spiraling guitar line beneath the synthesizers. Meanwhile, Warren delivers soft and breathy vocals to match the track’s atmosphere. The beautiful thing about this track, as well as any other Foxes in Fiction song, is that through the haze and otherworldly instrumentation there’s still beautiful songwriting. These tracks still feel sincere and personal and that feeling is undeniable.
Orchid Tapes’ Boring Ecstasy compilation is set to drop March 25th. They also have a showcase planned to coincide with the compilation and details for that can be found here. — Rafael G.

From the 12” vinyl compilation “Boring Ecstasy”, out on Orchid Tapes March 25th.
Here’s the first song I’ve released in some time, it’s gonna be released on the vinyl compilation my label is releasing at the end of the month. Best enjoyed with a nice pair of headphones~
From R.L. Kelly’s performance session in Brooklyn. She was accompanied by Warren Hildebrand (Foxes in Fiction). They were amazing. I wish I had a wider lens.

Thanks so much for all the love and support, we’ll see you on the 29th.
The label I co-run is releasing a 12” vinyl compilation and throwing an incredible showcase this March to go along with it. Life is kool.
Last night I had a dream that Sam Ray, Brian and I won a contest to go on a self-guided tour of the school from Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, and once we got inside there was a huge party waiting for us where people kept giving us ice cream cake and corgi puppies to hold and play with.
All my music is free so you don’t owe me anything, but you and anyone else is free to pay whatever they like ($0 is great and fine) for my music through my Bandcamp.
I’ll be releasing my new record as Foxes in Fiction digitally and on 12” vinyl through Orchid Tapes later this year. It has 7 songs and is just under 33 minutes long and features Rachel Levy’s vocals, Ansel Cohen on cello, Beau Sorensen on piano and Owen Pallett on violins.
Thanks for sticking around and being so patient with this release, everyone.
