Kevin Blechdom

Kevin Blechdom’s promoter called us a few minutes before the scheduled date for the TSM-shooting and asked if we had a back-up plan in case the weather would not change for the better. We hadn’t. But who would expect a snowstorm at the end of March? Anyway, the bad weather conditions before the shooting created at least a pretty nice contrast to the location we filmed Kristin – which is Kevin Blechdom’s real name – at: under blooming trees in a quiet corner of one of Vienna’s more crowded squares. This location seems almost too idyllic for Kevin Blechdom’s energetic music, which consists of simple but rousing electronics, fingerpicked banjo and Kristin’s insistent voice. Although the melodies often sound like they were taken from children’s songs, Kevin-Blechdom-music is pretty complex, with lots of different parts and unexpected turnarounds in her songs. Entertaining on the one hand, challenging on the other hand; and completely beyond anything when it comes to her live shows. It can easily happen that Kristin, who lives in the liberal bay area of San Francisco, performs topless with esophagus, heart, and lungs of a goat in her hand.
