Released in 2016.
"Blues and Oranges is the debut LP from Tender Ness (singer-composer Peter Witrak). With soft, crooning baritone vocals lilting each song along, the album blends together elements of bossa nova, French chanson, Jazz ballad, and contemporary choral music. Moods float between groovy and ethereal, and sonic palettes swish between analog and digital rhythms and textures. From a sultry commentary on the politics of desire (“They Say I’m Such a Tease”), to a trance-like meditation on one’s gender (“Androgyne”), the album sways between its namesake colors: bright, citrusy energetic oranges and dark, soulful muted blues. Available in 12” vinyl."
