Celebrating our 23rd year!

Who We Are:
Orange Recordings began in a crusty loft on the North side of Chicago. We got our footing and then moved everything to Southern California after a few years. Families and kids over the years shaped the old guy world and everything is now, for some reason, in Seattle... But at least we're still West Coast!

In the world of music there seems to be a gapping hole that cannot articulate, let alone appreciate the flavors that so courageously bellow from Orange Recordings. Orange boasts a straightforward, 4 on the floor, dual-carb approach that is never compromised on the artists' behalf, but is always integrated to bring indie credibility to those who partake. Dabbling in indie rock, 60's garage, 70's guitar rock, surf, salsa & swamp-dirty blues, Orange keeps an ever so delicate hold of the mainstream music that culture yearns for, while keeping true to the fans of that music. While precariously preying upon what is not past, present or future, but taking hold of an ever-encompassing musical realm of infinity, Orange artists instantly lead themselves into the annals of history; an idea that many talk about and believe in, but very few bring to the table. Whether the Orange credibility comes from the artist, hipster or plain Jane listener, it doesn't matter, because the likes of its' bands (The Mother Hips, White Hassle, Ultrababyfat, The Drapes, Cash Audio, The Giraffes, Parker and Lily, The Cells and others) see that an artists involvement in their label is as important as the labels involvement in their artists.

The Ghost Lullaby
What happens when a band combines the abstract sounds of Sonic Youth with the earth-shattering dynamic melodies of the Smashing Pumpkins, and mix it with psychedelia and shoegaze? The Ghost Lullaby, a metal-shoegaze rock group from Los Angeles. And they are here to crush you with guitar riffs, dreamy swirls of distortion pedals and drums that will leave your ears and hearts bleeding.
The Immortal Lee County Killers III
The band has just finished the brand new full length CD/LP These Bones Will Rise To Love You Again. It will be released September 5 in the UK/Europe by the plonkers at Funhouse and September 6 in the USA by the fine people at TEE PEE, also in Australia by In-Fidelity Records. The ILCKIII, along with Nashville's own Black Diamond Heavies, will be touring the UK/Ireland beginning September 3 in support of the new record.

Rob K (of The Workdogs)
The man was born the same year that Elvis recorded at Sun Studios. His blend of country-garage- blues-folk-rock is second only to the musicians that he keeps within the circle.. Jon Spencer, Marcellus Hall, Bob Bert, Hollis Queens, Matt Verta-Ray, Scott Jarvis, Zeke Healey, Christina Martinez, Kid Congo Powers.. The list goes on.. His newest album is the first stuff out since his Workdogs era.. Which was the same lineage of multiple side musicians and included his (still to this day way of doing it) stream-of consciousness lyrical approach to songwriting. Gritty, raw and real!

Check out the live video for "Escape Ffom New York". Recorded in San Francisco
Rough, raw and gritty no bull-shit rock and trash? You GOT IT! OUT NOW! HERE. ...more
The Drapes
Their sophomore effort. A raw, gritty, 3-piece with a touring vengenance from Chicago. If Jon Spencer and L7 had a one night stand - this would be the result! OUT NOW. ...more
The Orange Sessions Vol. 2
The Immortal Lee County Killers II & Cash Audio
The second installment in the Orange Sessions series features two rock'n'roll powerhouses in a deadly dance of death. Chicago's Cash Audio serves up three posthumous doses of their patented "rockabluesabilly" smash, followed by the Immortal Lee County Killers, who revamp two Quadrajets tracks in their own mighty guitar-drums-and-vocal style
Film Premier

We recently sponsored the Wasabi Tuna film premier in Los Angeles. The film stars Antonio Sabato, Jr., Tim Meadows, Jason London, Anna-Nicole Smith and Alexis Arquette. A great time was had by all, including the debaucherous evenings end (sorry no details available). (Picture: The Orange Chick - 50 foot spread looking over Hollywood's Sunset Blvd.)
