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’s Memories 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!
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.
