Sim­ul­tan­eously a trib­ute to depres­sion and well­ness, L’Orange’s ‘The World Is Still Chaos, But I Feel Bet­ter’ shows a music­al and emo­tion­al growth from the North Car­o­lina pro­du­cer.

Ten­sion is built, and released through­out the 23 track album. The album fea­tures guest nar­ra­tion from comedi­an Nish Kumar and Jeremy Scott (Cinema Sins) as well as musi­cians Marc Rebil­let, Sol­men Brigham (Mar­lowe) and Jeremi­ah Jae.

L’Orange said:

“When you’re grow­ing up depressed, the world can feel like chaos. Then, some­times you feel bet­ter and the world still feels like chaos.

But you feel bet­ter, and one day you real­ize that the world is the same as it always was….and you’re doing ok”

Ded­ic­ated to ori­gin­al­ity, L’Orange imbues his smoky, soul-soaked tracks with lush tex­ture through invent­ive mix­ing and psy­che­del­ic cuts from clas­sic radio record­ings.  A shop­worn MPC and vin­tage vinyl are essen­tially paint­brush and palette for L’Orange. He finds his sig­na­ture samples from pre-1950s jazz, soul and radio.  He stitches togeth­er a sound that acknow­ledges his pen­chant for clas­sic film noir and shad­owy motifs.

L’Orange albums are often cine­mat­ic and nar­rat­ive in struc­ture, exem­pli­fy­ing the artist’s highly con­cep­tu­al cre­at­ive pro­cess. While L’Or­ange is an inspired beat­maker and highly cap­able pro­du­cer, it is the per­petu­al search for beauty in the dark, unusu­al and for­got­ten corners of music that make him a true artist.  Every L’Or­ange pro­duc­tion is a unique, organ­ic and undeni­ably ori­gin­al work of art, giv­ing the listen­er a glimpse of the artist him­self, even if obscured slightly by shad­ow. L’Or­ange.
