CINDY LEE

WHAT'S TONIGHT TO ETERNITY

W.25TH


Format: LP
Cata No: W25-13
Barcode: 857661008292
For Patrick Flegel, Cindy Lee is more than just a recording music
project. It is the culmination of a lifelong exploration of art, the electric
guitar, queer identity and gender expression. “Singers like Patsy Cline
and The Supremes carried me through the hardest times of my life,”
explains Flegel, “and also provided the soundtrack to the best times.”
Following the dissolution of Canadian experimental indie band
Women, Flegel would delve deeper into songwriting that bends
further toward high atmospherics and bracing melodies—a
unique space where splendor naturally collides with experimentation.
Delivering moments of sheer beauty through somber reflections on
longing and loneliness, Cindy Lee is something to hold onto in a world
of disorder.
What’s Tonight To Eternity, Cindy Lee’s fifth long-form offering,
showcases the project’s most entrancing strengths: ethereal snowdrift
pop and sly nods toward classic girl-group motifs. Recorded at
Flegel’s Realistik Studios in Toronto and featuring younger brother
Andrew Flegel on drums, the album travels hand in hand with a
spectral guide.
Flegel found inspiration for Cindy Lee in the form of Karen
Carpenter, drawing on the singer / drummer’s early recordings as
well as her look and style. “I found a deep interest and comfort in
Karen’s story, which is a cautionary tale about the monstrosity of
show business, stardom at a young age and being a misfit looking for
connection. The darkness and victimizing tabloid sensationalism she
suffered is easily tempered and overwhelmed by her earnest output,
her artistry, her tireless work ethic. Something utterly unique and
magical takes shape in the negative space, out of exclusion. What I
relate to in her has to do with what is hidden, what is unknown.”
What’s Tonight To Eternity remains a mix of pop culture
indoctrination, pain and suffering, hopes and dreams, fierce
confrontations and wide-open confessional blurs. Closing with the
song “Heavy Metal” (dedicated to the memory of former Women
bandmate Chris Reimer) and adorned by Andrea Lukic’s Journal of
Smack artwork, the album continues the bold and rewarding path on
which Cindy Lee has embarked.
