Record of the Day…Things Are Never Simple by Kane Strang


Justin Vernon famously hid away in a secluded cabin in the wilderness of Wisconsin to write and record the sparse and beautiful classic – For Emma, Forever Ago. Similarly New Zealand pych-popper Kane Strang house sat at his parents in Dunedin, NZ and wrote and recorded his first “proper” record – Blue Cheese out now on Bada Bing Records and Flying Nun Records.

The result is equally engaging. Blue Cheese is a fusion of the experimentation of Andrew Bird, the scratch of The Pixies, and the eccentricity of The National (to my ear anyway).

Look for big things from Kane this year.

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I've lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
