Cindy Lee is the brainchild of singer / guitarist Patrick Flegel. While some may know Flegel from their 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. Model Express continues this haunting interplay with devastating effect.
LIke tman1015, I am a little scared of this album. It is a deeply shocking and accurate musical portrayal of senile dementia -inasmuch as I've (sadly) observed members of friends and family become gradually subsumed by it.
Yet it is captivating, there are many moments of beauty along the way. I cannot stop going back for another listen.
I wonder if anyone (apart from the artist) has managed to listen all the way through in one sitting. I am not even close to managing yet. Simon Woolf
Modernity brings many blessings, but one of its principle endowments is an increased demarcation between people and an increased perception of the scope of the world. With this comes a dangerous level of detachment from the frequent loss of life that people bear witness to while huddled around a screen. Diaries like "Hello People" should remind us that though they appear as images, they are people: microcosms worthy of sentiment and a moment of pause in recognition that a world has transcended us Camryn Marquez
