Astral Swans' Strange Prison is a spellbinding portal into the psyche of acclaimed Calgary songwriter Matthew Swann. Continuing his philosophical searching with both morbid humour and compassionate character studies, it focuses on the nuances of human existence. Co-produced with Scott Munro (Preoccupations), Arts & Crafts artist Dan Mangan, and featuring guests such as Daniel Gaucher (Destroyer, Sandro Perri), Dillon Whitfield (Reuben and the Dark), Rena Kozak (Child Actress), and electronic artist Tigerwing, the result is Swann's most sonically exploratory and emotionally resonant release to date.
Cindy Lee is the alter-ego of singer/guitarist/drag queen Patrick Flegel, the one-time captain of heralded Canadian experimental pop act, Women. In Flegel's working on/as Cindy Lee exclusively over recent years, their songwriting makes a move toward high atmospherics, often achieving a mysterious sweetness rooted equally in beauty and ache.
