Last month Ra Ra Riot kicked off their tour for their new record The Orchard with a combined four sold out shows at The Bowery Ballroom and The Music Hall of Williamsburg. While they’re hard at work supporting the new album, the short film which chronicled their chilled out recording sessions during the making of their sophomore LP just premiered on Hulu.com on Saturday night.

Syracuse chamber pop quintet Ra Ra Riot’s sophomore effort, The Orchard, was written and recorded in just that, a peach orchard. The experience of making art in this idyllic setting was filmed for the documentary Ra Ra Riot: The Making of The Orchard directed by Taryn Gould and Emily Kowalczyk. This piece was included on DVD in the limited-edition deluxe version of The Orchard of which only a handful remain at indie retail.

Check out The Making of The Orchard short film, plus more Ra Ra Riot tour dates and pics from the Sep 23 MHOW show after the jump. One last thing, if the still photos aren’t enough for you, you can also watch the full live performance of Ra Ra Riot at MHOW as shot by Baeble Music over here.
