The Orchard Soundtracks Presents: Louder Than Bombs
As a wise person once said, “You can listen to a great album hundreds of times, but you can’t watch a great movie hundreds of times — unless it’s Caddyshack.” While the very best films are undoubtedly worth watching over and over again, there’s no arguing it’s easier and more time-efficient to spin a great soundtrack a bunch of times than it is to keep re-watching the actual film. This is just one reason why a properly curated soundtrack album stands the test of time.
With The Orchard now a leader in the film and television distribution space, the company’s global reach in the music sphere makes it a natural fit to produce soundtrack albums for the film division’s offerings and select other cinematic releases. The Orchard is fully equipped to bring compelling soundtracks to fruition, expertly handling curation, distribution, sales, promotion, licensing and design.
Freeloader Friday: Ugly Heroes, Rogue Wave & More
This week brought in a fair share of fresh new tracks from The Orchard’s crop. Let’s jump right in, shall we?
Fans of intellectually invigorating hip-hop, rejoice — Ugly Heroes are back. The collaborative project of Detroit producer Apollo Brown and emcees Red Pill and Verbal Kent resurfaced this week with “This Word,” the first track from the upcoming LP, Everything In Between. Almost two years have passed since Ugly Heroes’ last work, but the group’s ethos has remained intact, putting the regular guy, “the everyday blue collar individual that makes the world go ‘round,” at the core of their music. Their latest track finds the trio in great shape, as it unlatches on our world’s current state. Apollo Brown demands respect as he blends hard-hitting boom bap beats with a synth reminiscent of a church organ. Meanwhile, Red Pill and Verbal Kent spit bars with surgical precision and raw ardor. Extremely excited for this June release.

As I’ve said time and time again on this blog, YouTube is probably one of the most important platforms available to you as an artist. You should spend a good chunk of your time thinking about what kinds of videos you want to post, making them all high quality and very watchable, and then also make sure that your descriptions and your bio are up to snuff.
