LIGHT IN THE ATTIC & FRIENDS (VARIOUS ARTISTS) VINYL (SUPER LTD. 'RSD BLACK FRIDAY' ED. SMASH COLOUR 2LP)
SUPER LIMITED 'RSD BLACK FRIDAY' EDITION SMASH COLOUR 2LP VINYL
Release Date: 24th November 2023
"For more than 20 years, acclaimed reissue label Light in the Attic Records has shined a spotlight on some of music’s most unique — and often forgotten — voices. But reviving these long-out-of-print recordings is only half of the process. “We believe that an essential component of archival work, aside from simply honoring the music, is to seek ways in which to bring fresh perspectives, context, and reverence to the original artists and their work,” says LITAfounder, Matt Sullivan. Thus, LITA’s acclaimed cover series was born, in which contemporary acts pay homage to their favorite LITA artists and songs. Spanning more than a decade, 20 of these inspired cover songs will be available together for the very first time, exclusively for Black Friday (November 24) on the 2xLP Light in the Attic & Friends. From Charles Bradley & The Menahan Street Band covering Detroit singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez and Mac DeMarco performing a song by Japanese icon Haruomi Hosono, to Iggy Pop & Zig Zags honoring funk queen Betty Davis, and Ethan & Maya Hawke covering country great Willie Nelson, these performances bridge the gap between generations, languages, and musical traditions."
