The Cakekitchen - Stompin Thru The Boneyard LP
The Cakekitchen - Stompin Thru The Boneyard LP (Ally/USA)
Ally is psyched to be releasing The Cakekitchen’s dark and powerfully catchy fourth LP, Stompin Thru The Boneyard, on vinyl for the first time in the US! Originally released on CD domestically by Merge Records in 1994, Graeme Jefferies has remixed and remastered the original album creating a more even and equally stirring effect. Mac McCaughan (Merge / Superchunk) cites this as one of his favorite iterations of the band, and for good reason. “Tell Me Why You Lie” ranks among the best of Jefferies’ edgy pop songs, while the multi-part “Hole in My Shoe” finishes with a sterling instrumental segment. “The Mad Clarinet” is a highly textured acoustic piece featuring another NZ legend, Alastair Galbraith, on violin. The album ends with the perfect closer, “Another Sad Story,” which is not just another song, but one of the finest melancholy earworms you’ll ever experience. NZ pop at its finest!
