Orchid Tapes | Est. 2010



Home Alone is the pseudonym of Thomas Mazurkiewicz, the newest addition to the Orchid Tapes family. Living in the quiet Toronto suburb of Mississauga, Tom uses his basement and a modest collection of modern and vintage equipment as his studio to create over-exposed low-fidelity stoner pop songs.

Home Alone’s first release is called Teddybears & Weed, a 7 song EP named after two of Thomas’ favourite comforts in life. Influenced by artists like Bjork, Modest Mouse and Wild Nothing and informed by universally enjoyable life forces like relaxing & getting high, the all-encompassing feeling of love and the company of friends, Teddybears & Weed is a warm and pastel-tinged interpretation of homemade pop that carves out a unique place in the world of lo-fi mid-range headphone jams.
