The Cakekitchen - Calm Before The Storm

Unit price per


Written in New Zealand over a four year period “Calm Before the Storm” features more instrumentals than any previous Cakekitchen album but still contains a large proportion of songs with lyrics and vocals. 

The instrumentation sways between acoustic guitars, regal pianos, banjos, insect like percussion and found sounds. Cellos and violas nibble their way into the back of your ear during the course of the album. The song Back of a Bus seems to somehow evoke revolution. Everyone gets picked on. The cold war is reheated with scorn to a White Light/White Heat style left hand piano part. Fingers are sternly pointed at antipodean leaders. John Key is declared an ant and Kevin Rudd is mockingly scoffed at.
