Cindy Lee is the brainchild of singer/guitarist Patrick Flegel. While some may know
Flegel from his time spent in Canadian experimental indie band Women, Cindy Lee has
spent the past four years crafting songs that push and pull in opposing directions
– from tales of tragedy laced with haywire distortion to moments of breathtaking
beauty. On Malenkost, Flegel combines everything that makes Cindy Lee so essential:
heart-wrenching romantic pleas, rough shards of noise and twilit ballads. Featuring
the lo-fi pop single “A Message From The Aching Sky,” Malenkost sounds like Deerhunter
playing The Supremes or vice versa. Superior Viaduct’s imprint W.25TH presents the
first of many Cindy Lee releases. Spectral and timeless, the music of Cindy Lee is
hauntingly familiar yet of another plane, a magical collision of Brill Building hooks
and uncompromising No Wave. “Cindy Lee is intensely dark and cathartic, an eerie fever
dream of fleeting, utterly heartbreaking classic girl-group melodies … one of the best
things we have heard all year.” —Gorilla Vs. Bear

Cindy Lee is the diva alter-ego of singer / guitarist / drag queen Patrick Flegel, the
one-time captain of heralded Canadian experimental guitar pop act, Women. In Flegel’s
working on / as Cindy Lee exclusively over recent years, their songwriting makes a move
toward high atmospherics, often achieving a mysterious sweetness rooted equally in
beauty and ache.  As Cindy Lee’s first long-form statement, Act Of Tenderness makes
use of antipodal themes to create a living sound: static with grace, distortion and
sugar, all masterfully arranged with crooked nods toward pop classicism. The layered
vocal on “Power And Possession” creates a palpable haunt, bringing historical girl
group lament to choir-esque heights. The feedback shriek and industrial grind of
“Bonsai Garden” provides near-operatic damage, yet never stumbles into the irrevocably
grave. These snowy pieces give the album a decidedly cinematic feel, albeit one bent
more towards Eraserhead. Originally released in a scant private edition in 2015,
Superior Viaduct’s imprint W.25TH is pleased to give Act Of Tenderness its deserving
wide release.
