Today is the day. Memories of Cindy, by Kai Hugo’s Palmbomen II, is finally here. The four-part series is available on four 12″s, 2xCD, and digitally. Check out the video accompaniments below, shot and directed by Kai Hugo, and purchase the series here.
A certain someone spirits above the second part of Palmbomen II’sMemories of Cindy saga, a passage of five plaintive cuts rendered with spineful percussion, succinct melodies, and classic acid and New Beat textures and treatments.
Cindy’s story may take a darker direction musically in Memories of Cindy Pt. 2, but Kai’s appearance on Real Talk alludes only to strange ways that make up a normal day in Carmel Vista. If you missed part one, back track a bit or enter Palmbomen II’s world at your own risk.
The first three Palmbomen 12”s, Memories of Cindy Pt. 1 – 3, will be available exclusively on vinyl. Memories of Cindy Pt. 4 will be available exclusively as a “box set” including the first three 12”s. Each set includes a unique, pre-tragedy polaroid portrait of Cindy taken by Kai Hugo. Scoop ’em & save on local shipping!
Jacques Bon motions through the day’s early energy of Dawning Light. True to the record’s title, Bon composed the four tracks for his debut EP on Beats In Space Records in the morning sun, reflecting and refracting the colors of daybreak from his compositions.
Kai Hugo eulogizes our dear Cindy through new Palmbomen II music and a surreal, neo-noir lens, chronicled over a series of four 12” EPs and public access television transmissions. Crack open a refreshing Apple Shorle™, and direct your remotes to channel BIS to experience an initial offering and explanation.
Sasha Renkas aka Antenna’s video for “Before I Fall Sleep,” directed by Renkas and Rozanne Ottenhof, is ready for dosage. Slip into a weightless landscape of Primavera’s soft unraveling – an in between world accessible at the crossroads of sleep and dream – below:
Compelled to create – or rather, extract – safer worlds from haunted hardware of the ‘80s and ‘90s, Sasha Renkas collaborates with vocalist Eline Makker to make escapist themes on the precipice of acid and adventure for Antenna’s debut 12″ on Beats In Space.
Primavera is a meditation on the sensitivity of spring. Far from a floral arrangement, Renkas and Makker engage the liminal space, a brief, bitter-sweet bloom between the endless summer and relentless winter.
Listen to Antenna’s new bloom, “Primavera May,” below:
