For You, Stranger
For You, Stranger was released on august 12, 2008.
It marked the start of Diane Marie Kloba’s most overtly experimental effort, intentionally shunning pop conceits, but still keeping the idea of the song as a short and self contained work.
Messages from the Ionosphere
Messages from the Ionosphere was released May 31, 2005 on Striped Shirt Records.
Messages from the Ionosphere featured some of the bigger guitar sounds that Diane favored before I Kid You Not; there are also a couple acoustic numbers singer-songwriter tunes and one piece of “beat poetry” with just flute, words, and percussion. Of course there are songs about star watching, appreciating joys of life and dreams, both the day and night varieties. With her poetry sometimes comes a bit of silliness, finding humor in seriousness.
I Kid You Not
I Kid You Not was released on July 1, 2003.
It was a lo-fi experiment which blended punk attitude, some sonic experimentation, subtle humor, and even some forays into hip-hop. It was voted the number 10 best album in the Village Voice “Pazz and Jop” poll.
