PREOCCUPATIONS 

Canada’s Preoccupations return to the post-punk, post-pandemic world with Arrangements. Their 4th studio album finds them restoring their roots with the singular, guitar driven, dissonant yet anthemic washes of intricate noise that has brought them international acclaim since their basement beginnings. For lovers of all things Bowie, Branca, Spacemen 3 and MBV, progressive punk, jangle rock and mangled goth. Arrangements sees Preoccupations finally and confidently inhabiting the dystopia that they have been carefully creating from their musical genesis. They are in a room with taped up windows, except for a tiny pinprick of light beaming from the otherworld onto the far wall, upside down and blurred, it’s recognizable enough to fill you with warm familiarity and nostalgia of unknown origins. Preoccupations Arrangements will be released into the world on September 9th, 2022

CINDY LEE

Cindy Lee is a Durham North Carolina based songwriter, performer and recording artist known worldwide as one of the last great lounge 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 are a theme, apparent in the contrast between grandiose pop ambitions and amateur recording techniques.
