Foxes In Fiction – “Shadow’s Song” (Feat. Owen Pallett)

Foxes In Fiction, aka Orchid Tapes label head Warren Hildebrand, is about to release a new album called Ontario Gothic. The record is about Hildebrand putting his life back together after his brother’s death in 2008. Owen Pallett contributed violin parts to most of the album’s seven tracks, including “Shadow’s Song,” the sighing, shimmering ballad Hildebrand released today. It’s an extra-ethereal take on the Phil Spector wall of sound that sounds like one of Hildebrand’s experimental sound collages swallowed up a desperately sad, expertly conceived pop song. Listen below.

Ontario Gothic is out 9/23 on Orchid Tapes. Pre-order it on vinyl or cassette.
