Pitchfork: Album Review (7.3)  

Madi Diaz, “Nashville’s Secret Weapon” (Rolling Stone), Releases New Single “Everything Almost” Watch the Lyric Video

“What starts with modest acoustic guitar strumming rises with an orchestral crescendo to match the urgency of her questions.” — New York Times on “Same Risk”

“A heart-wrenching ballad about accepting that a relationship has run its course, complete with a stunning melody and subtle instrumentation.” — Rolling Stone on “Don’t Do Me Good”

“[Madi and Kacey’s] voices beautifully intertwine and give what could be a solely devastating track a hint of an uplifting tone.” — PEOPLE on “Don’t Do Me Good”

“‘Same Risk,’ which precedes her 2024 album Weird Faith, proves that she hasn’t lost an ounce of the intimacy at the center of her 2021 full-length History of a Feeling.” — Billboard

“[Diaz] and Musgraves have inseparable chemistry together—their voices combining to commiserate into a stirring, emotional ballad.” — Paste on “Don’t Do Me Good”

“[‘Same Risk’] is a stadium pop song artfully disguised as a folk-country tune via unassuming acoustic guitar strumming that blossoms into an echoing arrangement replete with a string section and full-bodied backing vocals.” — The FADER

“A bracingly vulnerable folk-pop song about the terrible thrills of romance” — Stereogum on “Same Risk”

Weird Faith seems poised to cement Diaz’s place in the musical landscape of Americana.” — them.

Madi Diaz’s soaring voice and candid lyricism are in fine form for her follow-up to 2021’s excellent History of a Feeling.” — Brooklyn Vegan, 86 Albums We’re Anticipating in 2024

Nashville’s Madi Diaz, “one of indie rock’s most searing lyricists and vocalists” (NYLON), will release her new album, Weird Faithon February 9th via ANTI-. Following 2021’s History of a FeelingWeird Faith renders a self-portrait that captures Diaz in a fleeting moment in time, hungrily alive and forever searching. Today, Diaz presents the album’s third single, the upbeat and cathartic new number, “Everything Almost.”

“Everything Almost” is “about my constant wondering within a relationship,” comments Diaz. “How much should I be saying things out loud or am I saying too much out loud? What should I keep for myself? What’s mine that could become ours, that should become ours? What dreams are just mine that I could share with you only to discover they’re your dreams too? It’s an investigation of the depth of how far this thing could go. Am I allowed to keep some of me for me? Saying all of this out loud feels important. It is about realizing I can’t ever be everything for someone but maybe I can be almost everything.” Weird Faith answers these questions bluntly, and chronicles a new relationship, but also a new relationship to Diaz herself, exploring how anxiety-inducing — if not downright humiliating — falling in love can be.

Joining Diaz (vocals, guitar, bass, piano) on “Everything Almost” are the album’s co-producers alongside Diaz, Sam Cohen (drum machine) and Konrad Snyder (drums, percussion), and The Walkmen’s Matt Barrick (drums, percussion). “Everything Almost” follows the previously released singles, “Same Risk” and the duet with Kacey Musgraves“Don’t Do Me No Good.”

Diaz will embark on a North American headline tour later this year. Contact us with any requests!
