South Philadelphia-based Rock ‘n’ Roll artist Low Cut Connie has released Whips and Chains,” the third song from his forthcoming album Art Dealers, out September 8th, 2023 via Contender Records.

On the Garage-Rock single, frontman Adam Weiner calls out Donald Trump and the current wave of Neo-Fascism, proclaiming “Modern life ain’t all it’s cracked up to be, It’s a full-time job swimming through duplicity.”

About the song, Weiner explains:

We wanna live free in this world, but most of humanity is not free. There are so many systems of oppression and duplicity in this world: race, wealth, technology, religion – they can all be used as tools of oppression. It’s a real pain in the ass, and that’s what the song is about.

In addition to the new album, Adam Weiner co-directed an 80 minute feature film that will premiere late this year as a companion piece to Art Dealers. The film is a hybrid-genre documentary that combines a run of NYC concerts from 2022 shot at Sony Hall and the Blue Note, as well as 15 years of performance footage and “personal misadventures” that led up to Art Dealers.

There will be limited festival screenings of the film late in 2023 in tandem with this Fall’s US tour, with a wider release to follow in 2024.

Art Dealers follows the band’s 2020 album Private Lives and 2021’s Tough Cookies: Best of the Quarantine Broadcasts that was born out of their twice-weekly live-streaming Rock and Soul variety shows.
