The Dying Stockman

A 2 track electropop single (7m 52s) — released June 1st 2018 on Corella Records

After a six year hiatus producer Captn K is back recording under his DJ alias Blind Tiger. The first in a collection of lo-fi, dreampop and dance recordings, The Dying Stockman single is the inaugural release on the new West Australian label Corella Records.

The track began its life in 1885 as a bush balled penned by Queensland pastoralist Horace Flower but has found a new interpretation by Blind Tiger in 2018 with a dunk in a balmy billabong of vintage drum machines and keys. This sparse bedroom-pop interpretation of a classic poem sees the WA producer retelling the story of a dying stockman lamenting his last days on earth. Scored against a dusty desert of chirping beats and off-kilter keys this track will appeal to fans of Beck, Robyn Hitchcock and JJ Cale alike.

Continuing the theme, the flipside Ride to the Beyond is a cinematic instrumental interpretation of the stockman's last ride, Moody keys and bass set the backdrop with reverb drenched synths strings soaring through, bringing to mind classic synth-led Australian film soundtracks of the '80s.
