The Orchard – Deluxe Edition (CD or LP + DVD) (RRR12)
The Orchard Deluxe edition includes the CD or LP and features a bonus documentary directed by Taryn Gould and Emily Kowalczyk.
In 2008, Ra Ra Riot released their debut album, The Rhumb Line. Garnering much critical praise and named one of the top 50 albums of the year by Rolling Stone, The Rhumb Line steadily rose the charts and won the band a large live following.
Nearly a year later, this documentary catches up with the band in August 2009 on an orchard in upstate NY. Here they spend their days eating peaches and begin to construct a new set of songs for their sophomore album later entitled, The Orchard.
Directed by Taryn Gould and Emily Kowalczyk and including beautiful 16mm footage by Josh Goleman, The Orchard provides a glimpse into the literal and abstract place that inspires the album.
