about

LA-bred Cinderella MOTEL combines the eclectic madness of 70’s punk, the amped-up attitude of garage rock, and the sly sensibilities of 80’s pop to create an outfit never seen around the LA scene, at least not like this. CM creates a captivating wave of sound by melting eccentric audio arrangements, breakneck tempo changes, and subversively carnal and profoundly whimsical lyrics with JFR’s wailing guitars, Guerrero’s thunderous drum chops, Robles’ thick-filled bass licks, and Tomahawk’s full-force growling, howling yet lady-like vocals, crunchy rhythm guitar, and occasional punk-styled accordion.
CM’s first full-length release bolts straight out the gate with the bombastic title track ‘Automatic Pleasure.’ With songs like the horns-in-the-air, Sabbath-invoking ‘Clearance Valentine,’ the accordion-laced, punk barn burner ‘Put It Out’ and the hedonistic pleasure anthem ‘You Were Never My Boyfriend (So Let’s Dance),’ Cinderella MOTEL provides the soundtrack for all of us who want to live life with the knob cranked to eleven.
The album was recorded at The Cave Studio in LA by LightFM frontman Josiah Mazzaschi (William Reid-The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Blood Arm, Built to Spill) and mastered by Jon Drew in Toronto (Metric, F**ked Up, Tokyo Police Club).
Basically, if Iggy, Joan Jett, The Kills and Peaches had a baby backed by the Sioux nation, you'd have Cinderella MOTEL.

about

CINDERELLA MOTEL Los Angeles, California

Eccentric arrangements,breakneck tempo changes, subversively carnal yet uniquely twisted lyrics. One can think of Cinderella MOTEL as extracting parts of Black Sabbath, KISS, Rocket From The Crypt and The Dead Weather on a stormy night and stitching them together in a Frankenstein fashion with Siouxsie, Iggy, Blondie and Brody Dalle. ... more

Track Name: Clearance Valentine
Oh – Can’t you see.
By cautious moonlight.
Trying to abstain.
That’s the refrain.
Lovers move on.
In the hand of their woes.
Ricochet. Rebound.
Doesn’t make a sound.

You’ve got a clearance valentine.
Sift the racks. Not much time.

The wine is corked.
Despite the wait.
Something on the rocks.
Beats flowers in my hand.
Dinner after rock.
Work before play.
Livin’ the dream.
Isn’t always clean.

You’ve got a clearance valentine.
Damaged goods. Barely worth a dime. Whoa…
You’ve got a clearance valentine.
Entertainment.
Oh – I’m mighty fine.

Honeymoon – Honeymoon.
Incomplete.
Honeymoon – Honeymoon.
Defeat.
Honeymoon – Honeymoon.
Beat.Beat.
Honeymoon – Honeymoon.
Honey~

Point of no returns.
Keep what you take.
Use what you use.
Then toss it away.
Out the door.
Despite the price.
The cost of clarity.
I’m going home happy.

You’ve got a clearance valentine.
Check the bags. Precarious signs. Whooa…
You’ve got a clearance valentine.
I’m just sittin’ here.
Enjoying my time.

Oh – I’m mighty fine.
Oh – I’m mighty fine.
Oh – I’m mighty fine.
Are you fine?
