Cindy Lee

(Durham, NC)
Genre: Alt-Pop, New Wave, Shoegaze

Cindy Lee is a Durham, North Carolina-based songwriter, performer, and recording artist known worldwide as one of the last great torch singers and as a living guitar legend. A transient drag queen and dangerous drifter hellbent on corrupting the youth of America. They have sold out of every album they’ve ever made, each record a bold landmark in the history of pop music. After 4 releases with the Superior Viaduct label (Suicide, DEVO, Alice Coltrane, Ennio Morricone) they now self-release thru “Realistik Studios”. Beautiful and compelling Pop tracks and L-I-T-E torch ballads in the great tradition of Roy Orbison, Ros Sereysothea, Gloria Ann Taylor, and Patsy Cline. A blurring of fiction and reality is a theme, apparent in the contrast between grandiose pop ambitions and amateur recording techniques.

Freak Heat Waves

(Victoria, BC)
Genre: Dub, Post-Punk, Techno

For more than a decade, Freak Heat Waves have been steadily amassing a cult following and garnering acclaim from both critics and underground aficionados alike. Their music is a heady cocktail that defies any attempts at easy categorization, incorporating elements of post-punk, psych, dub, ambient, house, and techno. Their four LP discography has served as the soundtrack to countless DIY punk shows, outsider galleries and sleazy discos, establishing the Freaks as real-deal music makers with a reputation for evolving their sound, subverting conventions and ignoring expectations. At times, the term ‘acquired taste’ may seem fitting, but with their latest release, “Mondo Tempo,” courtesy of Vancouver’s Mood Hut Collective, the duo offer their most succinct and alluring album yet. Building on the experimentation of their previous record, “Zap The Planet” (Telephone Explosion Records), the duo doubles down on their foray into electronic music and injects their signature sound with a smooth and sweet blend of dance music. With their latest release Freak Heat Waves cement their reputation as one of the most exciting and visionary acts around.
