RSTB faves Cindy are back with their fourth album, digging their sound deeper into the well of quietude previously explored on their last album, but with a bit of the fog wiped from the glass on “A Trumpet On The Hillside.” Cindy remains the vision of Karina Gill, and retains the synth work of longtime member Aaron Diko, but the rest of the band shifts around them, adding in players from familiar SF names like Flowertown, Telephone Numbers, April Magazine, Famous Mammals, and Sad Eyed Beatniks. The first single from the upcoming Why Not Now? is tender, cocooned in a sense of serenity, but as Gill began on the band’s last LP, no longer lost in the obfuscation that pervades her works with Flowertown or contemporaries April Magazine. Here they weave into the slowcore cradle alongside greats from Galaxie 500 or Bedhead. The new album is out April 14th from Mt St Mtn/Tough Love.
