At their fun live shows, this upstate NY pop-punk duo is extremely energetic and super enthusiastic - lots of jumping and kicking by singer/guitarist Alex Luciano - she must have a spring for a spine. But more importantly, the songs are catchy. They also released a 7" in 2015 and a full-length coming out in 2017, Live video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=za979jCnlE4
Diet Cig is a slop pop band from New Paltz, NY, fronted by Alex Luciano with Noah Bowman on drums. The five songs on the debut Over Easy EP, written by Alex in the comforts of her bedroom, capture the innocence of adolescence and infatuation.
We are enormous fans of Pinegrove but that feels like an understatement. We are for everything they do from their DIY ethic to our fellow Jersey roots and of course to their musical novelty, more pressingly, their lyricism. I contend there's no current alt/indie project that shares the challenge towards articulation that Evan produces.
Every track is indispensable. The album is consummate like that; Old friends is incomplete without new friends, cadmium without aphasia, so on/so forth.
Her vocal range and her range of melodic ideas, combined with incredibly intriguing lyrics make this some of my favorite music to have stumbled on in months. I think Static Buzz is my favorite. Jasper Skydecker
