Private Lives [LP]
Artist: Low Cut Connie
Format: Vinyl

More Info:

Limited green and clear colored vinyl LP pressing. Private Lives is a beautiful mess, alternating between raucous, full-tilt, rock and roll ecstasy and gritty, stripped-down vulnerability. While Adam Weiner might not call it a concept album, there is an underlying architecture at play here. The record vacillates between riotous, anarchic anthems and raw, painfully honest solo performances, underscoring shifts between the public and private self. Easily Low Cut Connie's most potent and wide-ranging work to date, Private Lives is a complicated, sprawling double-album that's at once beautiful and sloppy, brilliant and sordid, pissed off and joyous. Exploring the schisms between our inward and outward-facing selves, the 17-track collection is as empathetic as it is ambitious, giving voice to the losers and loners and outcasts who live their lives beyond the spotlight without glory or credit.
