Diamond Jubilee


Cindy Lee’s Diamond Jubilee feels like it came from a parallel universe where the ’60s Motown sound took unexpected, fascinating turns. Cindy Lee (aka Patrick Flegel)’s stellar guitar work is the thread tying together the diverse stylistic explorations on this 2-hour epic. From the Ennio Morricone-inspired “Demon Bitch” to the shuffle of the guitar-driven “If You Hear Me Crying,” the tracks offer a balance of accessibility and surprise. ’60s R&B, surf rock, spaghetti westerns, and more find their place here, forming a unique, slightly eccentric atmosphere. To experience the Diamond Jubilee musical journey, you have to navigate Flegel’s somewhat janky Geocities website or search for a single-track rip on YouTube. But for adventurous listeners, it’s worth the effort. An unconventional yet timeless gem.
