Dutch artist Kai Hugo’s Palmbomen II project has its four Memories of Cindy EPs bagged up as a whole here. The most immediately obvious sonic siblings Palmbomen II are the lo-fi house school of DJ Seinfeld, Ross From Friends et al. Many of the tracks here contain the same tinny, moth-eaten grooves that characterises the work of those artists. However, look closer and you’ll find plenty of other things happening here. New Age music, infomercial soundtracks and synthwave also exert a pressure on Memories of Cindy. This is unsurprising, given that Hugo claims to be fascinated by the latent surreality of his adoptive home of California.
