Out Today by The Orchard: Jim Gaffigan, Jason Isbell & More

Every weekend is different. Sometimes you want to laugh, sometimes you want to just relax and listen to great new music and sometimes you want to discover a national conspiracy (just me?). Whatever you want this weekend, we’ve got it, from some wholesome comedy to a fascinating documentary.

After streaming on Netflix, Jim Gaffigan’s fifth comedy special Cinco is now available on audio, brought to you by Comedy Dynamics. Master of clean comedy, Gaffigan shares his gift of making just about anything hilarious, poking fun at everything from international travel to family life without relying on dirty jokes for easy laughs. He isn’t afraid to make fun of himself either (food, and his love of it, seems to be a common theme). Featuring bonus material and track commentary, Cinco is a ton of fun, and it’s guaranteed to brighten your day. Watch a clip from the special below, and get the album here.


Russel Dickerson, Brooke Eden & More: Our CMA Music Fest Recap

The Orchard’s artists stole spotlights throughout Nashville during the Country Music Association Music Fest last week. Every year, country fans flock to the Music City to see the best in up and coming country music. A few Orchardites, including our brand spankin’ new Nashville team, headed to the festival to catch some of our biggest names in the genre performing live. Here are a few of our favorites:

Triple Tigers artist Russell Dickerson performed at the packed HGTV Lodge for an energetic crowd (pictured in the image above). In between sets by heavy hitters such as Keith Urban, Darius Rucker and more, Dickerson had the venue singing his hit “Yours” so loud you could hear it from Memphis. (more…)

Out Today by The Orchard: Tora, Suffocation & More

It’s Friday, and that means two things. First, it means that you’ve survived the week. Second, it means that we’ve got some awesome new releases to help you celebrate. Buckle your seatbelt, because this week we’re taking you on an emotional roller coaster to meet all your weekend needs: from some mellow electronic tunes, to some ruthless death metal, all the way to a shocking horror comedy. Everyone ready? Let’s get started.

If you’re looking for some chill, summer vibes, look no further than Tora’s debut album Take a Restbrought to you by Lustre. The Australian group incorporates the natural into their soulful electronic feel, using organic sounds like creaking bamboo and recording much of the album outside (keep your ears peeled for the sound of a cacti being hit with rakes, because it’s in there!). Designed to be a peaceful getaway, this album is the ultimate summer soundtrack. Check out this live outdoor recording of “Amsterdam,” then kick back, relax, and Take a Rest. (more…)
