MOLLY LEWIS - MIRAGE VINYL (LTD. ED. PINK GLASS 12")
LIMITED EDITION PINK GLASS 12" VINYL
Release Date: 18th November 2022
"Molly Lewis’s compositions seem to float into our ears from distant shores. They’re otherworldly, drawn more from landscapes of dream than from anywhere you could find on a map. Lewis is a unique presence in music today. Her trademark whistle, which brings to mind the great Peruvian soprano Yma Sumac, has graced recordings of everything fromSchumann lieder and Brazilian jazz to Spaghetti Western ballads and noir lounge. Lewis’s collaborations are diverse: La Femme, Sébastien Tellier and Dr. Dre. She’s performed around the globe, atShanghai’s Yuz Museum, the Cannes Film Festival, MexicoCity’s Salón Los Angeles, and across the whole of NewZealand. Lewis’s 2021 debut EP, ‘The Forgotten Edge’, was produced by Tom Brenneck (Charles Bradley, Amy Winehouse). It was a critical success, drawing praise from The New York Times and NPR, and landing Lewis a spot on CBS SundayMorning. Now, Lewis and Brenneck have teamed up again for her second EP, ‘Mirage’, bringing aboard Brazilian guitarist Rogê, as well as percussionist Gibi Dos Santos and keyboardist Roger Manning. Capacious and atmospheric, ‘Mirage’ is Lewis’s most hypnotic effort yet. Like ‘Eden’s Island’ (1970) by eden ahbez- whose ‘Nature Boy’ is covered in one of ‘Mirage’’s standout moments - the album is based on Lewis’s visions of an imaginary island. The lush, oceanic textures of ‘Mirage’ transport us to the sands of an unknown beach - all alone orin the company we’ve always dreamt of keeping.""
