I am working on my next album and am very excited about the new songs. You can see a live version of “Shaman” in my video section.
I am not normally drawn to sparse, dryly produced, quirky, almost 90s-style indie music and abstract lyrics, but Kloba does this sort of thing better than anyone I’ve heard…her voice is a meandering coo, her lyrics are beguiling. She’s a buried American musical treasure that deserves to be unearthed, because you don’t come across a true original very often.
Back in late 2017, I contributed a track “He Lights Up” to the Winter Solstice compilation album from Vanguardista Records. For 2018, the compilation is being re-released with a bonus track and new artwork:
My track was reviewed briefly by Mark Barton at The Sunday Experience:
“Must admit, we here are quite adoring of Diane Marie Kloba’s slyly snaking ‘he lights up’ its fraying slacker-esque turning emitting a subtle sinister shadow to the proceedings that curiously hits something of a Television-esque grooving.”
There is a limited edition of physical copies of Deep Heart now available directly through me or on Bandcamp. The CD comes with a booklet with photos and full lyrics. Downloads and streaming are still available everywhere!
