On Where are the Arms, Kahane essentially proves himself as both a composer and a songwriter- his songs are richly layered endeavors where the arrangements and words walk hand in hand. Kahane's songs are composed almost purely out of those breathtaking musical moments you want to listen to again and again.
Where the Arms might be a pop album but Kahane certainly provides an interesting take on it with instrumental flights of fancy that are guaranteed to make the already fantastic songs your favorite right when you might've been questioning just that. "Charming Disease", "Merritt Pkwy", and "Calabash & Catamaran" are surefire standout but each song is pretty exceptional.
