William Starr Busbee is the latest addition to the red-hot Orchid Tapes roster, joining the likes of Foxes In Fiction, Ricky Eat Acid and Coma Cinema. Kicking off with a gristly trail of static that contributes to the track's endearing imbalance, "Forever" is dismantled lounge pop. Busbee's croon has the unmanicured vamp of a destitute crooner at karaoke night. It's the sound of a poorly placed wig about to topple onto a filthy suit, braided perfectly with warm, plucky Casios and backdropped by a distant chorus.

William Starr Busbee's College Rock Pt. 2 is out soon via Orchid Tapes.
