Title: Blue Cheese

1. Product Details

Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release from the New Zealand-based psych pop artist. 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. Its abrupt ending parallels Strangs 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.
