Kane Strang’s first proper album, Blue Cheese, picks up
on the rough disaffection of his earlier demo collection,
A Pebble and a Paper Crane, which he recorded in a
WWII bomb shelter in Germany. Back in his hometown of
Dunedin, New Zealand, Strang spent two curious months
alone, housesitting for his parents. Re-nested, yet still
isolated, Strang composed all of Blue Cheese over those
quiet days. Lead-off track “The Web” channels pummeling
bass lines punctuated by a twinkling synth that calls upon
microscopic pop principalities of restlessness (“Yeah, I
met someone else / Without leaving my little house / No, I
haven’t held her yet / I met her on the internet”). Its abrupt
ending parallels Strang’s own disconnect.
“She’s Appealing” weaves Day-Glo guitar motifs into
distant, detached ’80s garage pop vocals. “Never Kissed a
Blonde” is driven by a slapping delay on both vocals and
guitar. Strang’s path toward a melody is always surprising,
and he never misses a hit-on-the-head-obvious-in-retrospect
memorable line.
Strang amassed a band and has started playing his distinct
psych-pop live. He will tour the United States in 2016.
