Dig into this week’s Saturday Alternative playlist! The Fitting Room album was Dirty Pictures (Part 2) by Low Cut Connie, out May 18th on Contender Records.

Philly’s Low Cut Connie are known for bringing a furious energy to their live shows. Frontman Adam Weiner conjures the spirit of Jerry Lee Lewis – slamming away on his piano and jumping up on the bench – demanding the attention of those in the audience. The band has always been about the raw energy and attitude of rock and roll, and while they bring that to their fans in a live setting, that spirit has shined through on their albums as well.

Dirty Pictures (Part 2) is their fifth and best sounding album to date.  As with last year’s Dirty Pictures (Part 1), they worked on the album at the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis and while they’ve always been great songwriters, the songs have never been as well executed as they are here. It’s no wonder they’ve made fans in high places, having been invited to the White House by the Obamas and onto Elton John’s radio show to talk music. You’ll be able to catch them this coming Thursday, May 3rd, at WTMD’s First Thursday Festival.
