Kane Strang
Kane Strang
Kane Strang's debut 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. Now back in his hometown of Dunedin, New Zealand, Kane spent two curious months alone, housesitting for his parents. Relocated, yet still isolated, Kane 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. Kane never doesn't surprise with his path towards a melody, nor does he miss a hit-on-the-head-obvious-in-retrospect memorable line.
Katie Von Schleicher
Katie Von Schleicher
Released on cassette last year, Katie Von Schleicher’s Bleaksploitation took the tape world by enough of a storm to thunder demand for more formats. "Bleaksploitation is earnest pop for the wonderfully doomed generation," says DIY Magazine; Stereogum calls the debut "stellar" and "invigoratingly terrifying"; Consequence of Sound described her songs as “like ghosts trying to communicate through a cassette deck”; Paste claims they “sound like a vintage girl group playing in the basement of a haunted house.”

Stay tuned for her follow up this summer via Ba Da Bing Records.
Elijah
Elijah
Elijah grew up a son of Woodstock, NY, splitting time between exploration of the Catskill mountains and embedding himself in the area's fabled music scene. He formed an early foundation working closely with local greats like Levon Helm (The Band) & writing with artists like Simone Felice (Felice Brothers, Bat For Lashes, Lumineers).

Continuing a lifelong study of music, Elijah attended the Music Conservatory (at SUNY Purchase) where he met with classmates like Mitski, Photay, LVL UP & many others who collaborated in furthering his musical palette. After finishing school he found himself on an extensive theater tour with Gypsy Kings, which added another angle and styling to his repertoire.

Elijah is now based in NYC and focused on creation invoking his love of folk music while incorporating electronics with a punk ethos. Elijah released the How's Annie EP in summer 2016 via Old Flame records and is currently crafting his debut LP.
