Cindy is the eulogized muse behind Palmbomen II’s newest collection of twilit dance music. Cindy reveals herself over a series of four 12” EPs bearing her name (Memories of Cindy Pt. 1 – 4), each one constructed by Kai Hugo, the persona behind Palmbomen II, as an autonomous episode of melodic house laced with remote, otherworld fidelity.
Hugo turns each of the four Memories of Cindy parts into late-night TV transmissions hosted in the fictional, sunny and slightly warped world of Carmel Vista, California. The show takes form as Real Talk (scripted and directed by Hugo, “starring” Hugo as himself alongside Damon Palermo of Magic Touch as show host Samantha), providing a separate view of the Palmbomen II venture: a surreal, neo noir-ish California dislocated by the no-frills aesthetic of its music and the tragicomedy of its imagined characters.
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. Edition of 350.
