Philly Beats: New Music From Hometown Heroes – Low Cut Connie


Philly’s Low Cut Connie released their fifth album, Dirty Pictures (Part 2) via Contender Records .

The band travelled from their home turf of South Philadelphia to the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN where they cut their critically-acclaimed 2017 release Dirty Pictures (Part 1).

The record was featured on NPR’s Morning Edition with NPR Music critic Ann Powers claiming “[Adam] Weiner’s songs share something in common with Bruce Springsteen’s. ‘ He’s looking at characters who are a bit on the edge, but who are also all-American,’ she says. ‘This is classic stuff, from Steinbeck to today. And he taps into that on this album in really tender, moving ways.'”


Frontman Adam Weiner recently sat down with Rolling Stone at a diner in South Philly to discuss the record. Jonathan Bernstein wrote ” The new album, the band’s fifth, just may serve as the moment when the rest of the country finds out about the Philadelphia rock & roll outfit, who have developed a small but devoted cult following with their unusually unfiltered, exuberant live performances during the past decade.”

This summer, the band will hit the road for an extensive tour with Social Distortion as well as make appearances at Bonnaroo, Bottle Rock, Newport Folk Festival, Pickathon, Rock The Garden and more. Find a full list of tour dates below.
