Diet Cig unveils new single, announce debut LP 'Swear I'm Good At This' and US tour

Since it inception, Rock'n'Roll has always been music feeding itself with paradoxes (hey, it was born from a mix of white country and black blues!), and throughout its history it has thrived on sonic contradictions such as the psychedelic pop experimentations, shoegazer's blend of noise and celestial melodies and the '90s loud/quiet/loud leanings. Brooklyn's Diet Cig's comment their new single 'Tummy Ache' (streaming below) in a way that perfectly fits with this narrative: "Tummy Ache' is all about unpacking the feeling of approaching punk with radical softness, and the struggle when it's not always read as powerful or cool or whatever enough. Its the shout into my pillow when what I'm saying isn't being heard, and a big old I FEEL YA to all the femme folks creating space for themselves in a world that wants to keep us quiet." The duo is taking the opportunity of this single to announce the release of their debut album 'Swear I'm Good At This,' scheduled for April 7 on Frenchkiss Records. They will promote it through several live shows at SXSW and a month long US tour starting at Baby's All Right on the dey of the release.

Brooklyn-based Paris Monster drops new electro-blues track "Ain't No Movin' Me"

Armed with an arsenal of synth sounds, soaring vocals, and experimental electronic vibes, Paris Monster weaves effortlessly across genres and decisive categorization. On his latest release, "Ain't No Movin' Me," the Brooklyn-based act showcases its prowess for hook writing/crafting a track that could stand without accompaniment as a blues-y, spirtual declaration, but is launched into another realm by its bed of synths and echoing choruses. An inspired take on blues-folk that's both hypnotic and engaging, Paris Monster's sound seems to edge toward what could be the new face of American roots rock. Check out his new single streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni
