D.I.Y. Rockers Lonnieclaire Don't "Follow Back" On First-Ever Digi Release

D.I.Y. Rockers Lonnieclaire Don't "Follow Back" On First-Ever Digi Release

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Veteran Gotham-based recording project Lonnieclaire's new self-titled digital release is raw, unpolished, and is delivered with absolutely no commercial expectations.
"This is our best with what we had" says the band. "It won't appeal to many listeners (with drums recorded via smart phone mic) but we're still very proud to be D.I.Y. and LO-FI - sort of like Springsteen channeled through R. Stevie Moore"

Inspired by, and even very loosely chronicling the bands's mostly "off-again" existence going back twenty years, the release contains 7 tracks which would probably be best described as bluesy garage rock.

Lonnieclaire was formed twenty years ago and at that time recorded a handful demos and played some local gigs. The band survived only a few years, but the spirit has lived on morphing Lonnieclaire eventually into more of a "recording project".

The band's debut digital release means Lonnieclaire is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music, Googleplay and other digi sellers for the first time. But realistically the band doesn't expect to go viral anytime soon.

In fact, Lonnieclaire doesn't have any plans to heavily promote the release. "We sent the songs to 20+ blogs to test their interest and was rejected by all of them" says the band "That's totally cool with us. The point of these songs was not to make some commercial push."

Featured Tracks -
1 - The Blue Fly
2 - Creating a Mixdown
3 - Smiling
4- The Story of the Monster
5 - Go Get It!
6 - Not A Crook
7 - 'What Remains? (LIVE)
Born out of the DC rock scene in the mid-1990s, Lonnieclaire proudly waves a "Garage Band" banner but does so with its own special charm. Their sound is striped down and raw but surprisingly dynamic and original.
